A musical celebration of the summer solstice

The clink of ice in your drink, the hues of a long Scottish summer evening and the atmosphere of an array of unique, light-filled venues can only mean one thing – that our Concerts for a Summer’s Night series is back. Premiering last season to sold-out venues, this immediately popular series returns in 2023 – a counterpart to our other seasonal treat, Concerts by Candlelight. Expect a musical journey that takes in the well-loved (Debussy’s serene Clair de Lune) and the less expected (including music from jazz legend Chick Corea), introductions from the stage, a complimentary welcome drink on arrival and a chance to chat to musicians afterwards.

A perfect way to celebrate summer.
