Each year, a shifting cast of musicians assembles, staying for most if not the whole of the long weekend of gigs hosted by Zeffirelli’s in the centre of Ambleside.  Four double-bill evening gigs provide the set-piece core of the festival, but there’s an ambush of beauty around every corner.

Alongside the quality of the music at Ambleside Days, an impossible to miss open-ness and enjoyment of being together has become a feature of the weekend, evident for example in the pleasure the musicians visibly take at listening to gigs in which they are not involved. It’s one of the reasons no doubt that future dates are already being circled in calendars.
