Handel & Hendrix in London

In a single street in London, separated by a wall, are the homes of two of history’s most significant musical artists: George Frideric Handel and Jimi Hendrix. 25 Brook Street is the house that belonged to Handel and the place where he composed some of the world’s most enduring music such as Zadok the Priest, Music for the Royal Fireworks and Messiah.

Event

Live Baroque Music
11.00am - 5.00pm
Included in museum entry fee (Adults: £10.00, Children: £5.00) - Book online 

Visit the rooms where he ate, slept, rehearsed and entertained in a modest mid-terraced house for the last 36 years of his life and understand the man behind these incredible works.

To coincide with this year’s London History Day, Handel & Hendrix in London will be celebrating with a full day of live Baroque music inside Handel House.

Drop by any time during the day to hear both solo and ensemble performances on the 18th-century instruments in the intimate setting of Handel’s Music Room.

These performances will take place on the hour, every hour from 11am-5pm. The music performed will all be from the 18th century and linked to this year’s theme of courage.

Come to 25 Brook Street to hear some of Handel’s most courageous operatic characters come to life in front of you, and all in the very room where the great composer himself rehearsed and performed.
