Learning Festival 2021: Connectivity

May – June 2021

Tickets for the concerts and events at the Learning Festival are available to all, and we are so excited to welcome you back.

To apply for tickets, visit the web page of each event you would like to attend and click on the 'Apply for tickets here' link. This will open an email to our Box Office with fields for you to fill in with all the necessary details to request your tickets.

As we live through and emerge from a unique global situation, the ways in which we connect with one another have forever changed. Our sense of community has been challenged, but also strengthened.

The aim at the heart of Wigmore Hall Learning is to connect people through music, and this feels vital now more than ever – for all of us. When we face isolation, when we feel lonely, how can music bring us together? In this special festival, we explore and celebrate connectivity in its many forms.

This year’s Festival is like no other: whilst we hope to lead a mix of in person and online events, we will need to respond and adapt to relevant government guidelines in order to lead activity safely.

The Learning Festival is generously supported by The Howard de Walden Estate and Fidelio Charitable Trust

Online Installation

Artist Gawain Hewitt will create a virtual, playable Wigmore Hall, which will enable website visitors to interact with and listen to music made by participants from the Wigmore Hall Learning programme during the pandemic, connecting people across London and further afield.
