The organisers of Baroque at the Edge regret to announce that there will be no festival weekend in 2022.

While the 2021 online Festival last January was a great success, the high stress levels it put on our small core team meant that although plans were begun for a 2022 Baroque at the Edge, it was decided that it would be better not to proceed at this time.

The Baroque at the Edge charity remains, however, and our plans for the immediate future are to continue enabling adventurous individual projects that will fulfil our funding ambition of showing baroque music in new and revealing contexts.

For more news of that keep your eye on this site, or sign up for our e-newsletter.  

Meanwhile, here’s a recap of the 2021 festival

Imagine if Vivaldi was a folk-fiddler, Purcell a protest-singer, or Bach a techno-geek

Baroque at the Edge invites leading musicians from all genres to take the music of the Baroque and see where it leads them.

No rules, no boundaries – just Baroque music set loose
