Sunday 23rd June 2024

Saffron Walden Arts Trust invites you to the Fete de la Musique 2024 on Sunday 23rd June.

Occurring every three years, the Fete de la Musique celebrates music across the town of Saffron Walden. Inspired by the originally French festival which is held on summer solstice, all concerts are free and accessible to the public.

This year sees over 600 musicians perform at 10 venues in Saffron Walden, including the Town Hall, Market Square, Almshouses, Bridge End Gardens, and more. Every musical taste is catered for, including big bands, rock, salsa, buskers, choirs of every type, jazz, pop, classical and Latin; it will be a musical feast for the ears.

The Fete starts at 12pm at each of the venues, and the performances will last until around 6pm with singing and dancing in the market square. Some local favourite food trucks will also be on site.

The full list of venues is as follows:

  • Town Hall
  • The Market Square
  • The Almshouses
  • Bridge End Gardens
  • The Kings Arms
  • Jubilee Gardens
  • Saffron Walden Museum
  • Fairycroft House (inside and outside)
  • The Railway Arms

Local volunteers are managing each venue.

The Saffron Walden Arts Trust hopes to see you there!
