There will be music from a stellar line-up of local folk, indie, disco and soul musicians. There is a choice of three sessions across the two days, with strictly limited tickets available, so book ahead to avoid missing out.


The Scandinavian Film Festival returns this July with a specially curated programme of films and events, showcasing the best in new Nordic cinema.
