THIS year Dillington will be celebrating 23 years of its Classical Guitar Festival.

The 23rd Dillington Classical Guitar Festival will be held from July 30 - August 3.

The music of Spain and Latin America will feature throughout the week. 2017 sees guitar virtuoso Graham Devine make his Festival debut with a programme including works by Bach, Tarrega and Albeniz.

The brilliant Copenhagen Guitar duo will also be making their first appearance at Dillington with a programme including works by Scarlatti, Albeniz and Piazzolla, as well as music by Danish composers Anders Koppel & Martin Lohse.

On the Monday evening there will be a special programme celebrating five centuries of Spanish guitar music and on the Wednesday the music of Spain and South America will feature.

Audiences will be treated to solos, duos and trios and on the final night the fabulous Vida Quartet make a long overdue return visit to Dillington with works by Bach, Villa Lobos and Vaughan Williams.
