Our new season of events is officially underway. Running from May-August, with a wide variety of events, including everything from walking tours to a concert on the Thames, this is not a season to miss.

Check out what’s coming up this month.

Faith and Fantasy

Tuesday 9th May, 6:30pm

We have a few final tickets remaining for this solo harpsichord recital. A great chance to hear some rarely performed composers of the Baroque era.

Learn about the musical contrasts between the portrayal of mythical creatures for the French court, and German church music composed to represent stories of combat and melancholy.

Rituals to Mould Her With

Friday 19th May, 7pm.

Don’t miss this new multimedia work inspired by the musical ritual that celebrated the Virgin Mary in early medieval Spain.

The performance will fuse together the harpsichord, electronics, percussion and theatre to make a cutting-edge performance that you’re not likely to forget.


This month we have a series of masterclasses with a bassoon, recorder, and harpsichord focused in each. The perfect chance to find out the tricks and techniques behind each instrument from a master of the craft.

This will be special opportunity to watch an interaction between a master and a young professional at the beginning of her career.
