Stamford Arts Centre

Drawing on a rich heritage dating back to the 18th Century, Stamford Arts Centre is a thriving multi-arts venue at the heart of the town. We are extremely grateful to the centre for its help in hosting this year’s festival.

The beautiful SAC ballroom regularly hosts a range of concerts across their hugely popular classical music season that runs from October through to May every year. This May will be no different, when four of our major festival concerts will be gracing the ballroom floor. You can purchase tickets here from the Stamford Arts Centre website.

General Opening Hours Monday to Saturday 9.30am to 8pm, and One Hour before Sunday Films.

Browne’s Hospital, one of Stamford's most recognisable historical landmarks, traces its long history back to the late 1400s. Find out more about its past and intimate grounds on the Browne’s Hospital website here.
