Ulverston Music Festival!
Ulverston Music Festival is taking place over the next few days in the scenic surroundings of this traditional market town. This location is considered a well-kept secret with beautiful countryside just a stone throw from the town. Concerts take place in locations across Ulverston including the beautiful Concert Hall, several cafes in town and a wonderful old parish Church.
This south west corner or Cumbria is packed full of unspoilt landscapes, peaceful vistas and quiet lanes. Here you can escape the hustle and bustle of tourist honey traps. This really is the most idyllic place for the Classical Music performed by top performers.
The festival was founded by acclaimed pianist Anthony Hewitt in 2004 and has grown in size each from modest beginnings to include orchestral and choral concerts. The 2012 festival will features a programme of piano-based chamber music and recitals complimented by guitar and café concerts. The Laurel and Hardy Museum is located in the heart of Ulverston, birthplace of of Stan Laurel, and well worth a visit whilst you are there and a great wet weather attraction.
