Midsummer Music:  3-day festival over the midsummer weekend

 

Over a period of three days during the summer solstice, the Festival brings together young and old, amateur and professional, with a shared enthusiasm for the joy of live music either as performer or member of the audience.

The programme features both local talent and performers from further afield in the UK and internationally. As always, the programme is varied and talented, traditional and excitingly new, and we will be delighted if you can join us for this "high summer" of musical pleasure.

The weekend will comprise more than 20 concerts and events. Within the festival programme for adults there is a mix of: folk, jazz , pub sessions and much much more.
