East Neuk Festival

26 to 30 June 2024

East Neuk Festival was the idea of Donald and Louise MacDonald who co-founded it with Svend McEwan-Brown in 2004. At its heart is intimate chamber music, but the eclectic programme includes world, jazz, folk, contemporary, early, choral and electronica as well as films, exhibitions, public art and installations and literature events. Regular visitors include Christian Zacharias, The SCO, The Tallis Scholars, the Belcea, Elias, Calidore and Castalian String Quartets, Theatre of Voices, Paul Hillier, Renaud Garcia-Fons and Sean Shibe.​

ENF connects with its community in many different ways, but most visibly through its annual BIG PROJECT,  a commission for a major artist to create a new work for community and professional musicians, inspired by the landscape, heritage or history of the area. ENF nurtures young artists and since 2015, the ENF Retreat offers exceptional young musicians a matchless opportunity to spend time with outstanding world-class players, to learn both specific repertoire and also more general aspects of musical wisdom that will influence their work for years to come.​ We have twice been awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Audience Development. We are funded from many sources including Creative Scotland.
