An Online Festival, A Fine Wine Sponsor and some Holiday Thoughts
Dear ,
This weekend we launch our second digital festival, Overture, featuring some of our 2021 artists and some of those international artists originally scheduled to appear in this year's anniversary Festival. The evening series, filmed and recorded at the beautiful St Anne & St Agnes Church in the heart of the city in London, is made up of three glorious concerts featuring AFCM favourite artists. The daily offerings on Friday, Saturday and Sunday start at 10am on our website and Facebook page.  There are free morning melody concerts followed by a lunchtime concert each day to warm you up for the evening concert. More below.
Our Holiday packages are on sale too for those wishing to have flights, accommodation and concerts all booked at the same time.  
Finally, we're excited to announce that Wines of Tasmania have become our wine sponsor for 2021. Created when borders closed and small boutique cellar doors were unable to remain open, Wines of Tasmania are rare, select, hard-to-find, exceptional wines.  We're very pleased to have their support and very excited to learn more about these boutique wineries.
Warm regards,
The AFCM Team.

Wines of Tasmania
2021 Wine Sponsor
Wines of Tasmania is owned and operated by a group of passionate Tasmanian wine families. The collaboration was conceived during the COVID-19 pandemic when Tasmania's border closed and the cellar door experience ceased overnight.
Each month, a selection of exceptional, rare and hard-to-find wines from Tasmania's best wine producers are blind-tasted by a panel of wine industry experts.  The best are then chosen to be included in a monthly subscription box. It's about giving wine lovers around Australia, and the world, access to Tasmania's benchmark wines. Stay tuned over the coming weeks to see how Wines of Tasmania will be partnering with our Festival events.
