Lammermuir Festival patron Steven Osborne is one of Britain’s most internationally acclaimed musicians and his Beethoven is rightly regarded as peerless. The three last sonatas, which Steven will introduce with his own perceptive observations, represent one of the pinnacles of western music, and a formidable technical and expressive challenge for the pianist.

'A magnificent achievement... from the first note Osborne’s kinship with the composer is everywhere apparent and he conveys the vast contrasts of the last three sonatas unerringly'

Dunbar Parish Church

Dunbar Parish Church, Gillespie Graham's grand red sandstone gothic church of 1821 stands proudly looking out to sea.

Damaged by fire in 1987, its spacious interior was restored with a colourful mix of ancient and modern features including an elaborate early 17th Century monument to the Earl of Dunbar and some fine 1990 stained glass by Shona McInnes and Douglas Hogg.
