July 2018 : Licentiate, Lancashire School of Music (LLSM)

Institution : The Lancashire School of Music

Award : Licentiate (LLSM)

Description : Mid-blue, lined gold, bound ½" crimson.

The LSM was founded in 1986, and awarded its diplomas on the basis of experience. It fell into abeyance after the death of the last Principal in 1993. The LLSM originally wore a hood bound with ½" royal blue, but when the GLSM diploma was withdrawn, as it fell foul of government regulations on nomenclature, its hood with the crimson binding was assigned to the LLSM.
