To our Audience and Supporters

Impact of COVID-19 on Festival 2020

It is with a very heavy heart that we write to inform you that a decision has been taken to postpone, by one year, this year’s Deal Music & Arts Festival and to put on hold all our education work for the time being.  The safety of our Festival-goers, artists, staff and volunteers as well as the wider community is our priority.

Deal Music & Arts has been in existence for nearly 40 years and since that time we have brought you the very finest of artists and hopefully have given you all much pleasure and comfort.  This is obviously a time of great distress for us all and we at DMA are determined to secure our work for the future.  As you can imagine this  pandemic has serious financial consequences for us all and more than ever we need your support in these unprecedented times.  If you felt able to help us financially, either by becoming a Friend of Deal Music and Arts or making a donation please contact us through details below.

We at DMA are working hard to ensure that, as far as possible, we will replicate the 2020 Festival programme in 2021 so that we can share the joy of music and art that we had planned for this summer with you in twelve months.

We also hope to be able to share some events with you in the Autumn but naturally we have to listen to the Government Advice as to whether this is possible.

Please stay safe and ring the General Manager, Willie Cooper if you require further information.
