Our 2021 Programmes

Here is the first edition of next summer’s Bantry Festival with details of over a hundred concerts and recitals, a life-enhancing celebration of chamber music.

The full programme will be developed over the coming weeks as gaps are filled, masterclasses are confirmed and all the extras that make up a festival are put in place. At this point in time we can only guess under what conditions the Festival will come into being, but we have assumed that only tiny audiences will be permitted to attend each individual event – thus the multiplication of concerts.

Find out more here.

Please note online booking for any event closes 24 hours before it starts. You will be able to book the event through the booking office on 027 52788 up to 2 hours before the event starts.
