We’re busy planning for our 2022-23 season which will have the theme of TRANSITION. This feels like a particularly apt theme for this point in time, while we’re navigating the seismic changes of the past two years, and trying to work out where we can get back to doing things more ‘normally’, and where some of the changes brought about by the pandemic have been positive and led to new ways of doing things which we’d like to retain.
It’s clear from audience feedback that our outdoor Midsummer Season was a popular addition to the calendar, and is definitely something we’ll be continuing into 2022. With earlier planning we’re able to ensure that the programmes we present outdoors are carefully chosen and suited to performance in the open air. We’ll also be continuing to film our concerts for presentation online as BREMF@home events, which we hope will enable us to reach more of an international audience, as well as making our concerts accessible for those who find it hard to get out to live events. Even before the pandemic, BREMF was growing from a concentrated autumn festival to more of a year-round programme, and this is definitely a direction we’re planning to explore further. It was wonderful to be able to celebrate the festive season with so many of you last December with our first ever BREMF@Christmas event.
