9–11 June 2017

Venues around Kirkby Lonsdale

Kirkby Lonsdale Festival of Music

Kirkby Lonsdale’s very own weekend long festival of music will happen over the weekend June 9th to 11th. The weekend will feature a range of top-class LIVE musical acts performing in venues throughout the town. The final line-up of performers and participating venues will be published shortly (watch this space, keep an eye on the various noticeboards around town).

Our aim, as in previous years, is to feature talented local musicians in order to cover a wide range of LIVE musical genres; ranging from jazz to blues and soul, funk to rock, folk to choral and all points in between! The weekend will feature choirs in St. Mary’s, buskers in our streets and alleyways, ukulele bands and much much more. GIGS GALORE!! 

Keep this weekend free in your diary, as you won’t want to miss this fest of LIVE music.
