Children are admitted free (those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult). Car parking spaces are available, charged at 50p for a four-hour period.

A Brief History of Music – 600 years of music in 90 minutes

Date: 27/03/2020

19:30 - 21:30

‘Eclectic and Enjoyable….a bewildering range of instruments’.

‘A Brief History Of Music‘ takes in 600 years of musical history in 90 minutes! Beginning in the Middle Ages and ending up in the 20th century (and incorporating everything in between!) this fun and fast-moving show is a whistle-stop tour of Western musical history.

Featuring long forgotten songs and tunes (not to mention jokes!) GreenMatthews paint a vibrant and vivid picture of our musical DNA, mixing the familiar and the obscure, the raucous and the reflective and the courtly and the commonplace.

The show combines the vigour of the medieval period, the musical intricacy of the Renaissance, the grandeur of the Baroque and the pomp and bombast of Victoriana. Add to that the wit of Blackadder and 1066 And All That and the stage is set for a veritable musical feast.

Complete with a bewildering array of instruments such as virginal, rauschpfeife and lute (and that’s just the first 100 years!) ‘A Brief History of Music‘ uses tunes, songs and humour to take you on a musical journey from which you won’t want to return.

Holistic and Wellbeing Show

Date: 03/05/2020

10:30 - 16:30

The Holistic and Wellbeing Show will bring peace and calm around the Castle. There will be trade stands, workshops and talks on Holistic Products.
