This year’s programme is the most vibrant and diverse since the Festival began in 2008.

Musicians include: David Adams, Lucy Gould, James Toll & Max Baillie violin, Simone van der Giessen viola, Kate Gould & Richard Lester cello, Marianne Schofield double bass, Benjamin Frith piano, Liz Kenny lute/theorbo, Katharine Dain soprano, Fritz Brothers swing jazz band, Piers Hellawell composer-in-residence Sam Glazer, workshop leader Lenny Sayers, family concert presenter Aestus Quartet emerging quartet-in-residence.
