"Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
Since its inception in 2004, the Lincolnshire International Chamber Music Festival has worked to bring classical music out to the widest possible audience, with performances in churches, historic houses and assembly rooms not just in Lincoln itself, but in towns and villages throughout the county. In addition to the main 2017 programme, the festival also undertakes schools-based outreach work and presents a lunchtime concert series throughout the year.
The 2017 programme welcomes some of the finest artists to Lincolnshire from 29 July to 6 August. Entitled Romance and Revolution, this year’s programme includes everything from classical chamber music and an evening of jazz improvisation, through to a dance afternoon at Grimsthorpe Castle, a staged performance of Pride and Prejudice Live with Hayley Mills and a highly entertaining evening of regal music narrated by Henry Goodman.
