Armonico Consort makes a delicious return to the Festival with much-admired wine critic and broadcaster, Oz Clarke. Having already explored the relationship between music and wine, the Oz & Armonico team now investigate the highs and lows (mainly highs) of the relationship between gin, music, and humans over the centuries. Enjoy a glass of gin or two to the backdrop of Purcell, Handel and Dowland. Expect music, gin, incredible facts and blunt fiction. Tickets include two G&Ts!
