Following our successful Baroque & Beyond series last Summer, we are delighted to be running a mini Winter series of three different programmes, in Derbyshire and Lancashire. Baroque & Beyond events provide an hour of music followed by tea, cake and the chance to chat to each other and the performers. Harpsichord and baroque cello are joined by baroque violin, recorder and delicate 18th-century French bagpipes. Baroque & Beyond events are accessible, and suitable for all ages. Tickets can bought on the door or online at

We are hugely grateful to Continuo Foundation and the Duchy of Lancaster for their generosity in funding this series.
