Coronavirus update

Given the current Coronavirus epidemic, public gatherings are not permitted and it is unlikely that any concerts or events will go ahead in the near future. The government is due to review the situation in due course. The Delius Society is listing concert details purely for information, therefore, and encourages you to refer to the individual organiser who will be able to advise as to whether the concert will be reinstated at a later date. We will of course publish updates when future plans become clearer.

Events marked with a box and arrow take place outside the British Isles.

Details of forthcoming concerts containing works by Delius can be sent to:
