As a historian of food and the household, Pennell will take you on a culinary tour of Handel’s kitchen to tell the stories behind the dishes which graced the composer’s often laden table; and find out what was good to eat in mid-eighteenth century London.

Handel’s Contemporaries

From the 20th – 30th of November, our Composer-in-Residence Hunter Coblentz draws inspiration from the way both Handel and Hendrix experimented with their instruments for a series of four contemporary music concerts. Come to hear something you’ve never heard before.

In the penultimate chance to see them, improv opera group Impropera are back this Friday for our late-night special to sing homage to these two great musical masters, all on our original 18th century harpsichord.
