Cathy Boyes, BREMF Festival Producer says:
“Although the 2021 season was originally made necessary because of Covid restrictions in place at the time, it was a huge success and audiences really embraced the idea of sitting outdoors with a picnic to enjoy some fabulous music. The classical portico which is all that remains of the 1824 Royal Spa complex provides an atmospheric backdrop for the events, as well as a little cover in the case of rain! We’re excited to be returning to this brilliant venue in 2022 with a packed weekend of concerts and workshops.”
BREMF Midsummer Season at Royal Spa sees six events taking place over the weekend of 25/26 June. Programmes range from family puppet show Endo the Earthworm (Saturday 11am) and an Indian Music & Dance workshop (Sunday 12noon); toe-tapping music from both Medieval musicians Joglaresa (Saturday 5pm) and Folk band Hope Cove (Saturday 8pm); The Daksha Yagna – a performance of Indian classical music & Kathak dance (Sunday 3pm) and an event to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee with music from the reigns of our two queen Elizabeths (Sunday 6pm). Audience members are asked to bring their own seating, and invited to bring a picnic to enjoy. There will be loos and a bar on site to give the events a Festival atmosphere.
Tickets for BREMF Midsummer Season go on general sale on Tuesday 3 May, with half price tickets for under-25s and certain other groups, and children under 12 go free.
