Welcome to Lake District Summer Music, our 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. Events feature internationally-acclaimed artists from the classical music field, concerts nurturing and showcasing emerging musical talent, unique artist collaborations, award-winning film screenings, world premieres including LDSM commissions, and large-scale choral works involving our excellent local societies.

Keeping abreast of changing tastes and trends, we explore new possibilities whether they be artistic or geographical. We strive to ensure our programme is as engaging and inclusive as possible.

Thank you to all our audiences and artists that made the 35th Festival a huge success. Details of our 2020 Festival will be announced in early May but put Saturday 1 to Friday 14 August 2020 in your diary NOW!
