Happy New Year and welcome to 2017 at Handel & Hendrix in London

The new year is upon us and it’s going to be a year of very special anniversaries for us.

2017 marks 300 (yes 300!) years since the first performance of Handel’s Water Music and 50 years since ’67, Are You Experienced and the Summer of Love.

We’ll be putting on some very special events in the year to come, starting with right now in January.
