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

The last 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 Update - February 2021

Well who would have thought that 10 months down the line we'd still be in lockdown, eh?

We were hugely disappointed to have to cancel The Musical Mystery Tour last year and were hopeful that we could bring back the magic in 2021.

And we still are.

With the vaccination programme well under way and the prospect of lockdown measures easing over the spring and early summer, we're crossing our fingers that we'll be able to stage an event at the end of August.

However, the viability of The Musical Mystery Tour is very much dependent on the relaxation of social distancing measures.

The safety of everyone involved in the festival is our utmost concern and therefore we are unable to make a decision about 2021 until we can be sure that we'll be able to provide a safe environment for everyone taking part.

The provisional date for 2021 is Sunday 29th August and a decision on whether or not we'll go ahead will be made later in the year.

In the meantime, follow us on social media - Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, to keep up to date with news about Hertford Music Festival.

Stay safe and fingers crossed!
