The 2012 Festival, held in
Carlisle Cathedral 12 - 15 July, was a great success; and so now we look forward to
a successful 2013 Festival: successful in terms of the music you will hear; successful in terms
of the quality of the performances; and successful in the degree of enjoyment of our audiences.
At the end of February we learned that our application for a grant from Arts Council England had
been successful, and so we look forward with confidence and enthusiasm to be being able to deliver
a great festival.
- Festival brochures - are expected to be available mid-March.
- We have also got a good programme lined up for the Spring season of

- Lastly our Annual General Meeting will be on Friday 12 April at 12:30 pm, at the Bidders' Room, the
Shepherd's Inn, the Rosehill Esatate. Join us for lunch after the meeting.
