Castalian String Quartet, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and the London Philharmonic Orchestra among the acts to perform when Saffron Hall reopens in summer 2021

Saffron Hall has announced the line-up for when it reopens its doors to music lovers in June.

The award-winning 740-seat venue in Audley End Road, Saffron Walden, welcomes the Castalian String Quartet on Friday June 4. The group were named Young Artist of the Year by the Royal Philharmonic Society in 2019 and claimed the inaugural Merito String Quartet Award/Valentin Erben Prize the previous year.

That weekend will also see James White & The Wild Fire, who fuse indie, country and bluegrass, and jazz musicians The Toots Project perform on Saturday June 5 while world-famous chamber orchestra the Academy of St Martin in the Fields take to the stage on Sunday June 6.

There are also two rescheduled concerts. The Cambridge Summer Music Festival presents Mendelssohn's Octet on Friday June 25 before the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment play on Sunday June 27.

Tickets are not yet on sale for the June concerts. Highlights in July and August include concerts with Jess Gillam, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Aurora Orchestra. Full details will be announced in due course.

The team at Saffron Hall are looking forward to welcoming people back through the doors.

The venue recently missed out on support from the Government's second Cultural Recovery Fund despite being one of only a handful of venues outside of London to open during the autumn, when it presented more than 45 socially-distanced events as well as free digital performances which have had more than 56,500 views in the last three months.
