"The range of artists, the programming and the site layout is all thoroughly sorted - it keeps getting better and better"

The stunning Southwell Minster is a splendid cathedral with one of the finest Norman naves in Europe. The Minster hosts music from the festival on Friday afternoon.

While you are at the festival, it is well worth spending time wandering the independent shops and pubs which help make the town so special, and which come alive with dancing and other events while the festival is on.
