Violin Concert


Incredibly, Christmas is not far away now, (it doesn’t feel like it in this summery weather!), so do start thinking about Christmas parties and family events. Christmas at WLP, Christmas at BH.

The WLP violin concert is on 14th October featuring Madeleine Mitchell and Nigel Clayton, and a super programme including the famous Franck violin sonata in A major.

Arboretum tours at WLP continue through the lovely autumn season, and the NGS Open Day is on 23rd October from 1-4pm.

Great value weekend breaks at both WLP and BH area available throughout the autumn season.
