LIFEM 2022 is a festival celebrating early music in its many forms. Our three-day exhibition taking place at Blackheath Concert Halls is a feast of instrument makers from around the world, alongside societies, publishers and record labels. A treasure trove!
This year’s performance artists are truly inspirational and the platform is not only an opportunity for highly-regarded professionals to perform, but also for us to support emerging early music artists through the Young Ensemble Competition and our series of Performers’ Platforms. We also fully embrace the concept of 'new music for old instruments' and this year will be presenting to you two world premieres.
Wrapped around all of the above is a full programme of workshops, lecture recitals, talks and makers’ demonstration recitals. Something for everyone, we hope, whether lifetime early music enthusiasts or new fans. Everybody is welcome.
