To celebrate Ulverston International Music Festival’s 20th Anniversary, director Anthony Hewitt is set to ride again accompanied by the 'BeethoVan' tomorrow (Saturday 18 May).

The unique musician is set to don lycra and oil up his bike chain to perform on a piano loaded onto the back of a van. 

He will ride to and play in towns and villages in each of the three nearby peninsulas bordered by the Duddon, the Leven and the Kent rivers.

On the coast to coast of South Cumbria, he will set off from Ireleth and perform in Millom, Broughton, Lowick, Cartmel and Grange.

In each location he will give a series of free, short performances at the following locations: 

9.30am - Departs from Ireleth


11am - Millom (outside Beggars Theatre)

12:30pm Broughton (Square)

2:30pm Lowick Farmers Arms

4:30pm Cartmel (outside Cartmel Priory)

5:30pm Grange (Main Street car park)

6pm Finish

All performances last around 25 mins at maximum. 

According to the Ulverston Music Festival website: "Anthony’s original adventure as the Olympianist, was about celebrating his twin passion for the outdoors and music.

"Today the message hasn’t changed – get out into this beautiful part of our world to support Anthony and listen to some fantastic piano music.

"Bring along friends for a fun day out or cycle the route with Anthony."
