Join us for IAML 2023

Our venues

The Congress will take place in the Faculty of Music on West Road, Cambridge and in the University Library, with additional events in Cambridge Colleges.

The opening event will be at Trinity College, with tours of the Wren Library (home to both Winnie the Pooh and Wittgenstein), and will include some birthday surprises, as IAML (UK & Ireland) celebrates its 70th anniversary.

We are pleased to announce that the Farewell dinner will be in the iconic dining hall of King’s College, Cambridge.

Social events

Go for a trip to Ely Cathedral, and admire its medieval splendour. Ely is also a bustling market town, where you can see the home of Oliver Cromwell.

In Cambridge there will be guided punt tours, visits to the many historic libraries of the University, and walking tours of city sights.

We are pleased to announce concerts in Pembroke College Chapel, and at the Old Divinity School (part of St. John’s College), as well as in the biggest concert space in Cambridge at the Faculty of Music’s concert hall.

As well as our plans for your visit, there’s plenty to do yourself from tackling your own punt to watching Shakespeare in a college garden. There are also a variety of museums in and around Cambridge, and a huge range of food and drink.
