Presented in association with Worcester College

We take a brief but wonderful diversion from our Schubert Weekend to welcome this star duo, who complete the Festival’s series of intimate lute-song recitals. They perform a programme of songs by John Dowland, the great master of song-writing in the early seventeenth century.

Due to the limited capacity of Worcester College Chapel and anticipated demand for tickets, Iestyn Davies and Thomas Dunford will perform the programme twice. Please clik here to book for the second performance.


PRACTICAL INFORMATION

All our seating is unreserved; please arrive in good time to take your seat. For groups of more than 10, please phone or email the box office to book your tickets.
