We, at the Hornby Festival, are excited about many of the opportunities that have opened up for festivals across BC with Stage 3 of the Restart Plan that just went into effect July 1.
We are thrilled to be able to invite many more of you to attend our festival stage at Rosemuir Farm. While we will be allowed up to 5,000!! people in attendance outside, we will still be staying somewhat small as there are many infrastructure limitations that we cannot get around in such a short time. In four weeks we can only shift so far, but we are thrilled to be able to do so much more that we had thought possible only a few days ago. While all of our live performances will be at Rosemuir Farm, we will still be including a spectacular classical performance with Beckie our 8 foot Bechstein piano (at the farm) and as well as an incredible jazz performance for the lovers of our Community Hall programming.
Unfortunately, we won’t be able to run Art In Unusual Places this year, or the Hornby Festival Live on the Lawn at CHFR 96.5. We will have a very exciting exhibit/workshop series at the hall and a more spaced out but dynamo lineup of world-class regional performing artists at our stunning outdoor location of Rosemuir Farm. Lineup details will be coming your way soon as we are working hard to completely rework our schedule.
Calling all volunteers – if you would like to help out this year and join our team as a festival volunteer, we now are starting to fill the many varied positions. Festival volunteers are rewarded with free tickets to our shows. Please email or call the office and leave a message with your contact information (email and phone), and we will contact you to slot you in. firstname.lastname@example.org/250-335-2734.
A big shout out to our donors and sponsors who have already generously stepped up to the plate this year to make a festival possible.
We can’t wait to see you at the Hornby Festival 2021 – now in its 39th year
