Combine outdoor pursuits with your love for classical music
The 2018 East Neuk Festival is taking place on 27 June – 1 July. The heart of the Festival is classical chamber music, but they also present world, jazz, folk and electronica. In addition to musical celebrations, the festival have commissioned films, exhibitions, art installations and literature events as well as guided walks.
The festival uses a range of venues throughout the East Neuk, from small and large churches, town halls, an ex-nuclear bunker, caves, an RAF base, a Scout hut, a cow byre, to stately homes & gardens. The organisers take great pride in ensuring that the high standards on-stage are matched by the care and consideration given to all their attendees. One thing is guaranteed – each festival presents something new and unusual!
One of the attractions is the sand sculpture outside the Honeypot in Crail High Street. We hear that there will be opportunities to participate in art and craft classes during the festival this year. For book lovers there is a literary strand to the festival.
