About our Summer Concerts
This concert is part of the Dartington International Summer School & Festival, a month-long musical celebration, encompassing shared music making, learning and listening.
Our extensive public concert series utilises a faculty of internationally renowned and emerging musicians to create a stunning cross-genre programme of over 100 concerts and events. Set against the backdrop of Dartington’s striking medieval Great Hall, the Summer School’s concert series presents the highest levels of performance in a carefully curated collection of classic works and “made for Dartington” exclusives. Full listings for the Summer School concert series can be found here.
If you are interested in taking part in one of Summer School’s music courses, you can find out further details here.

The Green Table café will be staying open late during the festival, plating up fresh and seasonal local food and drinks. Next to the Great Hall, The White Hart restaurant and bar will be serving a selection of food, along with a broad range of quality drinks and between concert nibbles.

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
