The London International Festival of Early Music is one of the largest and most inclusive early music festivals in the world. The festival began in 1973 and was first hosted at the Royal College of Music. The event moved to the Royal Horticultural Halls, and Greenwich, before finally finding its home at Blackheath Halls, in London’s oldest surviving purpose-built cultural venue.

The festival attracts a network of vibrant artists, early music enthusiasts and supporters. In 2020, we were faced with unprecedented challenges posed by Covid-19, and were required to adapt and innovate to achieve LIFEM’s goals. We took an innovative approach to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, and welcomed world-renowned concert artists and a global audience to our first digital festival – LIFEM:Digital.
