Donating to LDSM couldn't be simpler ...

Lake District Summer Music's summer school programme benefits over 140 students from 21 countries every single year. LDSM's events bring the highest quality performances to this inspiring landscape performing to over 10,000 people every year. But none of this could happen without the financial support of individuals like you!
