Thame Town Music Festival cancelled due to delayed lockdown lifting
Press Release Tuesday 15th June:
Following the announcement of the delay to the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions last night from the Prime Minister it is with great disappointment that we have had to cancel the Thame Town Music Festival for 2021. Festival Director, Johnnie Littler said “We have held our nerve until the last possible minute hoping to be able to deliver a great party of live music and celebration for everyone. Unfortunately, the delay to lifting of lockdown restrictions means that, now, we have had to cancel the festival again. It’s such a shame as a great many people have worked so hard to create the perfect day. The level of anticipation has been huge but we know that keeping everyone safe takes priority. Several people have asked if we could simply delay it by a few weeks. Unfortunately, this is not possible, given the availability of stages, production teams, artists and, not least, our own team. Many of these have to be booked a year or more in advance. I am however pleased to announce that we will bounce back again and the next Festival will be on Saturday 9th July 2022.
The good news is that the Glenn Miller Orchestra concert in St Mary's Church will take place as a stand-alone event on Friday September 17th 2021.
Huge thanks to all those who have worked so hard to try and make the 2021 event happen"
