Early Music Evening

July 2022

Played before the old facade dating back into the last days of the 17th Century, West Green House Opera, in the perfect setting, dips for the first time into our earliest music with an Evening of Early English Music and Opera with supper prepared by West Green House’s chef and wines from our cellar.

Late afternoon Concert in the Theatre Lawn Pavilion.

Miriam Allan, the soprano who so beguiled the country with her singing at the funeral of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, will be joined by Britain’s most celebrated lutenist Elizabeth Kenny to present an idyllic selection of English lute songs.

A two-course dinner with wine in the Greenhouse followed by….
