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.’

Opera Magazine

Winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society best UK classical music festival 2017

Winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society best UK classical music festival 2017

‘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’

Seen & Heard International

Beautiful Music, Beautiful Places

A beautiful place to be, not just for the music
