Mini Sherborne Festival

September 2021

This was a fabulous celebration of the return of live music and featured some incredible performances over the course of the weekend. It was a joy to welcome such lovely audiences; their rapturous applause was appreciated by all who performed for them.

We were also joined by our official artist in residence James Budden and official festival photographer Len Copland, both of whom captured the weekend so beautifully in their respective mediums.

Audiences on the opening night were treated to a stellar performance from Mark Lockheart & Roger Sayer of ‘Salvator Mundi’ in the Abbey, and notably, for the first time outside of Temple Church, London.

Other highlights included a sellout performance from sublimely talented, local-born guitarist Felix Stickland and a magnificent performance from the Iuventus Ensemble led by Ruth Rogers.

Of course none of this would have been possible without the support of our incredible volunteers and patrons, to whom we would like to offer our sincere thanks.

We very much hope you will join us in May 2022 for our first full, week-long Festival in three years, we will be bringing you more news of this soon!
