Lammermuir Festival 2020 update

The First Minister is quite rightly taking a very cautious approach to lifting lock down.

Her update to Parliament on Thursday 30 July means that very sadly we will not be able to present the 2020 Lammermuir Festival as we had hoped. We held on to the very last moment to maintain the possibility that we might be able to present live music for you in September.

We continue to look into how we might safely bring you some live music this autumn and will post an update in the next few days

Hugh Macdonald and James Waters, Artistic Directors

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’

Beautiful Music, Beautiful Places

A beautiful place to be, not just for the music
