2020 Festival

We regret that owing to the continuing COVID-19 coronavirus crisis, the 2020 festival (including performances by Vincent Dubois and Thomas Trotter) will not be able to take place as originally scheduled. We are currently working with the artists to try and reschedule their performances for the next edition of the festival and we will publish details here as soon as they are available.

It’s very hard not to be enthusiastic working at the Abbey. If this place doesn’t make you smile I don’t know what will.
