Please join Lord and Lady Carnarvon for a magical June Sunday to include a guided tour of their spectacular home followed by a performance of Mozart’s “Grande Partita” serenade for strings in the gardens.
Whether you are entranced by Downton Abbey, or would like to explore the Egyptian Exhibition, we hope it will be the most memorable visit, topped by a performance of the Partita in the surroundings of Highclere’s Arcadian 18th century parkland. Performed by young musicians from the Royal College of Music, this serenade for 13 wind instruments will take place by the 18th century Temple in the glorious setting of Highclere’s Capability Brown designed park.
Weather permitting, there will be seating and tables of complimentary scones, cakes and lemonade will be set up around the Temple. Our Coach House tearooms will also be open to offer you hot drinks and delicious food during the afternoon.
Sunday June 28th celebrates Jeanie, the 7th Countess of Carnarvon’s inspirational music charity: the Newbury Spring Festival. She is much missed but lives on through the Festival, which she began 42 years ago. Today, it is an internationally renowned fortnight of music bringing together internationally acclaimed musicians for concerts, competitions and educational events.
