Medieval Music in the Dales

A Long weekend of Medieval music making in the magnificent Yorkshire Dales

  • 9 January 2016

Last year the Trouvere Medieval Minstrels performed at Swaledale Festival in the historic Gayle Mill at Hawes. It is always a great pleasure when a Festival appearance has a spin-off such as a new partnership of artists, or as in this case, the realisation that there is a place for a whole new event. The first Medieval Music in the Dales takes place in Bolton Castle, Wensleydale from 2nd- 4th September 2016 and features medieval music, instrument makers, workshops and market.
