Programme Note

For this May’s Museums at Night, we’re celebrating the annual fortnight-long festival that gave Mayfair its name.   

This May we have an evening of live music, performances and interactive activities to celebrate a forgotten part of London’s history.

On the first floor, in Handel’s Music Room, Baroque musicians Charles MacDougall (tenor) and Katarzyna Kowalik (harpsichord) will reveal a narrative celebrating the coming of Spring using some of Handel’s greatest operatic pieces.

Other performances will take place throughout the house, including an acoustic set by English folk songstress Olivia Chaney.
