Lake District Summer Music Festival

The festival has chamber music at its heart. There are more than 40 events all taking place across the South Lakes with Ambleside being at the centre of it all. Combine a good walk in the fells with a fabulous concert in one of the many stunning venues, historic churches and halls. You will find internationally acclaimed artists as well as showcasing emerging music talent. There are also films, world premiers and much more to enjoy as well as ballet and opera relayed from the great opera houses and shown at Fellini's Art Cinema in Ambleside.

The focus is mainly on classical music and each event is ticketed individually with some events being free of charge. For more information have a look at the LDSM website

About Richard & Diney

Richard & Diney met whilst working in London and moved to the Lake District in the summer of 2015. Moving to Ambleside was a quick and easy decision to make with planning taking place in the autumn of 2014. Richard spent the best part of 25 years in the world of finance before seeing the light and moving to Cumbria, while Diney’s love of the Lake District began during her first catering job working at the Outward Bound Centre in Eskdale.
