The Issigeac International Music Academy came about as a result of a meeting between former journalist, Adrian Lithgow, and Ishani Bhoola who both agreed that the town was the perfect place to cultivate this particular form of art. It is a not-for-profit organisation constituted to promote classical music education.

The medieval town of Issigeac features a wealth of beautiful buildings and cute little alleyways to wander around. It has restaurants and boutiques and a fantastic market on a Sunday morning. It’s also famous for its pumpkin fayre at Halloween. Well worth a visit!
