Masters of Tradition 2020
We lost two Festivals this summer, but we fully intend that the third one, Masters of Tradition, will go ahead. The Government's Road Map currently gives the thumbs up to festivals in the second half of August if produced subject to social distancing rules, which will be a new experience for all of us.
COVID-19 Plans in the Making
We are glad to be able to announce that streamed and online versions of this summer’s West Cork Chamber Music Festival and the West Cork Literary Festival will replace the live versions cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Irish Government’s COVID-19 Roadmap is enabling us to come up with plans for Masters of Tradition in Bantry in August.
COVID-19 Update March 24th
In view of the high level of uncertainty about the Coronavirus pandemic, West Cork Music is suspending on-line bookings for the West Cork Chamber Music Festival and the West Cork Literary Festival workshops. The West Cork Music office is now closed and the Festival teams are all working from home.
We regret to inform you that we are closing our office to the public as of today due to the current situation with the COVID-19 virus. However, please note that bookings can still be made by phone and online.
