Beggars Fair & COVID-19

This will not come as a surprise, but we have regrettably decided to cancel this year's Beggars Fair. With 5 months to go there is extreme doubt as to what will be possible or even allowed in July. Social gathering inside or outside is very likely to still be in place then. Along with not everyone being given the vaccination by then, safety has to be our first concern and it's just not worth the risk with an event like ours.

However all may not be lost as we are investigating the possibility of having online steaming of bands via YouTube/Facebook on the day. But we'll let you know the outcome of that nearer the time.

Summer's Here And The Time Is Right For..

Music, dance and street entertainment will return once again to Romsey in 2021, when the 28th Beggars Fair takes over the town. Expect to see, hear and enjoy over 90 acts spread over 20+ venues and all for Free at Romsey’s annual Summer Music Festival.


Throughout the streets and in venues all around the town, the best of local musicians bring you an eclectic mix of folk, jazz, blues, soul, rock, bluegrass, classical and world music. Together with colourful dance displays and children’s entertainment there is plenty of entertainment on offer.
