The Lapwing Music Festival takes place in the stunning location of Cuckmere Haven. Running from 31 August to 2 September 2018, it provides a series of intimate concerts in the magical setting of the Coastguard Cottages at Cuckmere Haven, and all profits will go to Cuckmere Haven SOS which seeks to save the setting from coastal erosion.

Artists at this year's festival include the quanum player Maya Youssef, the hang drums player Manu Delago, mezzo-soprano Lea Desandre in recital with lutenist Thomas Dunford, and Dunford will also be giving a solo recital. There will be a screening of Manu Delago’s 30-minute film Parasol Peak, as well as a screening of Cuckmere: A Portrait by Cesca Eaton and Ed Hughes which premiered at the Brighton Festival this year, as well as a buffet lunch with guest speaker Juliet Nicholson.

Full details from the Lapwing Music Festival website.
