The first concert of the festival includes works by Durham-based composers Ian Dickson and Eric Skytterholm Egan, alongside two stoically beautiful pieces based on the idea of lines. Egan’s work choreographs the outlines of bomb craters in North Korea, while Lamb’s piece consists entirely of short lines drawn on three short pages. Each of these pieces show how even simple shapes can express far more in music than they might appear to express on the page.

Tickets: £5, Students £2, Under 18s Free
