Celebration of Early Music at Burton Constable Hall

Join us at Burton Constable Hall on Sunday 16th June for a celebration of early music in the beautiful setting of this Elizabethan mansion near Hull.
The North East Early Music Forum are guaranteed to delight visitors to the Hall with their performances of early music from the 16th and 17th centuries, bringing to life the past of this historic house which has been home to the Constable family for 700 years.
Enjoy chamber music by Geoff Walker and the group Merry Melancholy in the 19th Century chapel, a reminder of this great country house’s Catholic past and Lady Margaret’s defiance of Elizabethan laws. Or relax with St Austin’s Choir and Chansonniers in the vast grandeur of the Great Hall. From 12pm to 4pm visitors will be able to listen to beautiful early music from soloists and small choirs as they make their way around the Hall.

Included with the standard house admission charges.

The Early Music Forum are a group of like-minded people who enjoy early music - including medieval, renaissance, baroque and early classical.
With over 30 state rooms to explore and extensive grounds by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown for families to enjoy, Burton Constable has plenty to keep families enthralled for a great day out.
