Hertford Music Festival is an annual celebration of local live music and includes a wide variety of genres, from rock, folk, funk and reggae to classical and jazz

Last year's Musical Mystery Tour took place on Bank Holiday Sunday 25th August 2019.

Now in its 14th year the annual Musical Mystery Tour has become firmly established as an eagerly anticipated event in the County town’s cultural calendar.

Covid-19 and The Musical Mystery Tour

Anyone wondering whether or not this year’s Musical Mystery Tour will happen on the 30th August as planned?

Same here! Given that things are changing on an almost daily basis, there's no point in our making a decision one way or another at the moment. For now, with over five months to go, we'll just say we're hoping to go ahead but we're keeping a close eye on developments.

In the meantime, it would help with our ongoing planning to know who’s up for taking part.

Venues that have taken part before have all received information packs detailing how to register - so we suggest you register to confirm that you’re on board.

Performers – please go ahead and apply in the usual way when applications open (watch this space!)

This Year's Event

The team are currently in the early stages of organising this year's event, liaising with potential sponsors, local authority partners, consultants, and talking amongst ourselves about how to bring you the best Musical Mystery Tour ever in 2020.
