February at Handel & Hendrix in London

Apparently Handel’s neighbours referred to 25 Brook Street as a ‘mad house’, and so far in 2017 that doesn’t seem to have changed.

Our Baroque concerts have been selling out fast, we’ve had an amazing response to our Hendrix Flat anniversary party, and there’s been some very exciting filming going on in Handel House – more on that soon.

Hendrix Flat Anniversary

If you’re one of the 25,000+ people who have come to Jimi’s home at 23 Brook Street over the past year then thank you and we hope you enjoyed it.

As tomorrow is a year since the Hendrix Flat opened,  we’d love to hear from you. Share your memories, experiences and photos with us tomorrow and wish us happy birthday!

We’re on Facebook, twitter and Instagram so take your pick.

London Handel Festival

Musicians have been rehearsing in Handel’s Music Room this week in preparation for the this year’s London Handel Festival. If the rehearsals are anything to go by it’s going to be great.

Highlights for the 2017 Festival include a special concert to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the Handel Singing Competition to be held at Cadogan Hall, the rarely performed Faramondo, and Joseph & His Brethren to close the Festival. All of these performances will feature the London Handel Orchestra, conducted by one of Handel House’s closest supporters Laurence Cummings.

If you’re lucky enough you might catch one of them playing in Handel House in the next few weeks otherwise find out more here – http://www.london-handel-festival.com/
