‘Many consider Higham Hall to be the UK’s best independent residential college providing a range of open learning experiences for adults ... Being a Trust means Higham is run on ethical principles always true to its mission. We are entirely self-supporting with nearly all income coming from the courses we offer ... Once people discover Higham they tend to return again and again, often for many years, to share the joy of simply spending intelligent time with like-minded people in such charismatic surroundings.‘

‘Ireby is a small farming village with a population of about 160. The village is situated on the north west edge of the Lake District National Park World Heritage Centre. It is 12 miles from Keswick and Cockermouth and 18 miles from Carlisle ... Over the years it has developed a reputation of early sell outs, so be sure to react fast to be part of one of the few festivals where the actual love for music and one another is still the main point of focus. With a range of music to suit most tastes, performed in small intimate venues and a main stage venue restricted to just 650 people, Ireby festival presents an unforgettable and unique atmosphere and is considered among the best for those with a real love for live music.’ Held Late May.
