A rare chance to visit and enjoy an evening in one of England’s most glorious Tudor manor houses.
A favourite visiting place for Queen Elizabeth the First when visiting Suffolk, Hengrave was also the working home for 50 years of one of England’s greatest composers, John Wilbye. Hear some of his finest works for singers, alongside songs from Italian composers from whom he drew inspiration. Lutenist Jamie Akers, acknowledged as one of our finest players of music of this period, will accompany solo songs which would have been performed at Hengrave for entertainment, but also marking its pre-eminence among the great houses of England, at a time when England rivalled Italy in its musicmaking. Ticket price includes wine and canapes. Proceeds to local charities. Please note:- The event has had to move to the churchchapel in the Hengrave Hall grounds, instead of Hengrave Hall itself. Starts: 7pm Tickets: £15 Venue: Hengrave Hall churchchapel, Bury St Edmunds This event is promoted by Bury Festival.
