In this film, Daniel takes us to beautiful Twente in the Netherlands, and to the ancient village of Stift where he grew up. We go inside the intimate 14th-century village church where many of the festival’s concerts are held and on a tour of this beautiful location. As Daniel explains, the theme for Stift Festival 2018 – 26th August to 2nd September – is ‘Intimate Letters’. There is a parallel theme of ‘Nature’. Not to be missed!
