NLMS has been running summer schools for over thirty years.  The 2018 Summer School was a huge success, with record attendance and great music making by all the ensembles and friendly support from our amazing team of tutors.

The 2019 summer school will take place from Saturday 3 to 10 August, in an exciting new location – Downe House School in Cold Ash, near Newbury in Berkshire.

Downe House is an ideal venue for our music summer school.  Musical accommodation is plentiful, the residential accommodation comprises single and double rooms all with wash basins, catering is very high quality and the buildings are accessible and close together, with parking nearby.  Situated only a few miles from the M4 and A34, and from Newbury station, the school has excellent transport links. Extensive and beautiful grounds as well as a swimming pool complement the facilities available to course members.  And of course we will be setting up our usual bar!  Overall, Downe House is a wonderful venue for enjoying friendship in music.
