100 things to love about 2021
“This delightful festival . . . features top rank musicians, playing in beautiful venues in a lovely tucked-away corner of Scotland.”

Hello. We can’t help feeling hopeful that we will be able to welcome you in person to a 12th Lammermuir Festival from 7 to 20 September 2021. All being well, we will present a programme of beautiful music from world-class artists and exciting new talent performed in beautiful places across East Lothian in south east Scotland. And we will also live stream a selection of these concerts online. We hope to launch the programme here on this website at the end of June. In the meantime, to receive updates, and a brochure through the post at the end of June (email pdf version if you are overseas), please do sign up to our mailing list and, if you are not already a member of the Lammermuir Festival family, please consider supporting us by becoming a festival friend.

All the best for 2021

What the press say

‘This festival’s subheading is beautiful music, beautiful places. It fulfils its promise’

The Observer

‘There’s a quiet class about the whole thing that generates a special kind of listening: for all the dark arts of conjuring festival ambience, Lammermuir tends to simply programme right and let the music do the talking’

The Guardian

‘Music treats in surprising places. Hard to ask for more than that I’d say. I urge you to check it out’

Seen and Heard International

‘A remarkable experience – The Lammermuir Festival, founded only in 2010, is going from strength to strength under artistic directors Hugh Macdonald and James Waters.’

‘The Lammermuir Festival is one of the UK’s youngest classical music festivals, but it has already carved out for itself a pretty special niche in the hearts of the audiences who are in on the secrets of its quality and its very special atmosphere’
