Lake District Summer Music offers plenty for visitors

Finding a British holiday can be a challenging task due to the sheer amount of options available, but a one night spa break in the Lake District is sure to be a good choice for many reasons.

The region is renowned for its welcoming atmosphere and tranquil nature, which are two of the reasons why it has become a popular destination among Britons who are looking for a relaxing yet adventurous trip.

Because the area is home to some of the UK's most visually stunning scenery, plenty of opportunities are available for people to explore tremendous greenery and nature, which are often sorely missing from the country's bigger cities.

Visitors can opt to admire the landscape from afar, or embark on a number of the trails on offer, which provide a variety of sensational views that will give people an abundance of postcard images to take home with them.

After exploring the Lake District's mesmerising countryside, guests can look forward to a whole host of other attractions, including Lake District Summer Music.

The event will run from July 28th to August 12th and acts as a tribute to history's great composers. It will open at Ulverston's Coronation Hall, where The Song of Hiawatha will be performed.

Once known as the most popular choral work in England after the Messiah, the production has close links to the area of Cumbria.

It was performed at the Mary Wakefield Festival in 1901 and boasts a plot which focuses on the fortunes and misfortunes of the Native American lifestyle.

Many other shows will be running as part of the festival, including a Vocal Kaleidoscope, which will take place at Kendal Parish Church and will see covers of famous works from Byrd, Milton, Tomkins and others.

Across the festival, a number of burgeoning talents will be showcased, such as Kiryl Keduk and cellist Mikhail Nemtsov, who won the 2011 Pierre Fournier Award.

These performers will be displaying their talents at various locations throughout the festival, so it is advisable for people to plan ahead to ensure they do not miss out on a fantastic exhibition of music.
