Lake District Summer Music

Welcome to Lake District Summer Music, an international arts festival based in the Southern Lake District with chamber music at its heart. Each year, LDSM hosts over 40 events in stunning, intimate venues in locations such as Kendal, Windermere, Ambleside, Grange-Over-Sands and Ulverston. Our events feature everything including internationally-acclaimed artists from the classical music field, concerts in support of showcasing and nurturing emerging musical talent, unique collaborations with local societies, award-winning film screenings, world premieres, and many more. We strive to ensure our programme is as inclusive and engaging as possible, and we are always looking to explore new territories, whether they be geographical or artistic.
