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!
Booths are priced at £180 for restricted view or £200 for unrestricted view. Booths include entry for 6 people to the event and guarantees your space for the evening. They are only available to reserve by calling the Box Office on 01423 562303.
Doors open at 7:00pm.
This is a seated gig. Tables are arranged in unreserved cabaret seating. Come in, find a seat anywhere, squeeze in and make friends. We’re a friendly bunch so please do not leave gaps between seats, so everyone can find a space.
ID may be required if you’re lucky enough to look under 25.
