2021 Festival: 26th July – 6th August


Welcome to the Church Stretton Arts Festival website. On these pages we are pleased to present our 2021 Arts Festival. After the disappointment of having to cancel our 2020 Festival, we are thrilled to be able to host three fabulous outdoor performances – a complete departure from our normal format.

Bookings are now open.

As well as the exciting outdoor performances, we are also pleased to offer the ever-popular free Morning Concerts and Organ Recitals. The morning concerts will take place during the first week of the festival with local musicians bringing us a variety of music. Three organ recitals will be performed at various churches in the area during the second week.

Head over to the Events Listing for details of all events.

Here is some general info about our Festival, in a normal year (2021 is not normal but the scaled-down Festival still has much to offer):

Running every year since 1967 (except 2020, due to Covid-19), our annual 2-week Festival takes place in late July/early August.

During our Festivals, we present a range of performance arts to suit all tastes, and also the Art Exhibition, which continues to grow, and attracts well over a hundred exhibiting local artists.

We have:

  • Classical music concerts
  • Contemporary music concerts
  • Drama
  • Free coffee concerts
  • Free organ recitals
  • Art Exhibition
  • Art-related Workshops

Church Stretton provides a fantastic base for a short holiday, while you are enjoying the Festival, with the town’s own interesting range of independent shops and eateries. Not far away, and easily accessible (even by train), are Shrewsbury and Ludlow, with their own unique attractions.

We look forward to seeing you here!

The Festival is registered as an Educational Charity Reg. No. 511905
