Statement from the Board of Hebden Bridge Piano Festival
The Board of Hebden Bridge Piano Festival is extremely disappointed and very sad to announce that we have decided to cancel this year’s Festival. You can be assured we didn’t take this decision lightly, but as we now expect that the over 70s and many others will have to stay at home for an extended time, it makes the responsible preparation and management of the Festival impossible. We must prioritise the wellbeing of our volunteers and hosts, our audiences, the staff at our venue and of course, the artists themselves
We hope some of the artists will be able to come and play in Hebden Bridge another year. We are already planning next year’s festival which will take place on 23rd-25th April 2021.
Those of you who have bought tickets online will be refunded hopefully later today. We’ll be in touch with people who bought their tickets at Hebden Bridge Town Hall to ensure you are refunded as soon as possible.
