Enjoy the whole festival live online for £165 with a Digital Festival Pass. All events will be available on demand after broadcast until 30th November, so you can catch up at a time which suits you.


Co-commissioned and supported by the Bodleian Libraries, this film offers a remarkable insight into the creative process of a composer, and into one of the world’s most important libraries. Tom Coult shares his experience of being an Albi Rosenthal Fellow at the Bodleian and the inspirations for his song cycle, Wholesome Counsels, that will be premiered at the Festival (see Event 64).


For our audience at home, we are delighted to present three specially made films, each with musical performances recorded exclusively for these films. Filmed by TallWall Media, they feature fascinating speakers and musicians, and explore the music, poetry and creation of song. They will be available from the opening day (8 October) until the end of November and are accessed via the Digital Concert Hall in the same way as all our livestreamed events.
