Hengrave Hall will be hosting the Madrigals on Sunday 17 May.
Hengrave Hall is a magnificent Tudor mansion with 27 luxurious bedrooms. The manor house was built in 1525 and was the seat of the Kitson and Gage families from 1525-1887.
Hengrave Hall has a fascinating history and its own idyllic chapel. Elizabeth I stayed at Hengrave in 1578 and there is a chamber named in her honour. The madrigalist John Wilbye was employed by the Kitsons at Hengrave and in London, as was the composer Edward Johnson. King James II also visited Hengrave throughout the 1670s.
The Hall hosts events and weddings. Find out more on the Hengrave Hall website.
