Our Fantastic Venues and Where to Stay
Stamford is a beautiful historic town, located on the River Welland on the outskirts of Lincolnshire. Steeped in culture and the arts, it boasts not only a number of excellent performance venues but also lovely places to stay if you're travelling far. Find out where we'll be playing this year, then book your tickets here.
Our thanks go to all of the venues that have offered their services for the duration of our festival. Want to help ensure we can come back next year? There are plenty of different ways you can help the festival. Find out more here.
Stamford Methodist Church
Our inaugural evening concert will be held in the delightful Stamford Methodist Church. Though first built over 130 years ago, this wonderful church remains vital to the Stamford community as a venue for lectures, gatherings, and an informal cafe. Its open space provides ample room for concerts and we can't wait to open our festival here with an evening of string quartets.
Browne's Hospital, one of Stamford's most recognisable historical landmarks, traces its long history back to the late 1400s. Today, it offers an intimate venue for our two lunchtime chamber performances. We only have 50 tickets for each concert, so don't hesitate to book your tickets!
Oswald Elliott Hall
The Oswald Elliott Hall is the heart of the performing arts at the Stamford Endowed Schools. A state-of-the-art performance space, it makes for the perfect venue for our two major weekend evening concerts, featuring the wonderful Clara Rodriguez on Saturday 28th and our grand finale on Sunday 29th.
