For lovers of acoustic music and fine craftsmanship, the Acoustic Guitar Show returns for a second successful year.
This superb event is the place to experience the finest handmade British and American musical instruments.
Exhibitors include bespoke luthiers to major guitar manufacturers. See and hear the world's best steel string, archtop, gypsy and classical instruments, even mandolins! Learn how a guitar is built, meet the makers, try out that dream guitar. Want to build a guitar? Watch the hourly demos, while Masterclasses cover topics from Choosing a Guitar to Songwriting and Slide Guitar Techniques.
Not a musician? You can still enjoy many of these fine instruments played by some of Britain's top guitarists on the Live Stage, complete with cafe and bar. From contemporary to classical, folk to flamenco, jazz, blues or ragtime, you'll probably hear it at The Acoustic Guitar Show.
