Handel House Museum
Come along on Saturday 27th January for a visit to the Handel House Museum. About the house Handel House Museum at 25 Brook Street, was home to the great baroque composer George Frideric Handel (1685-1759). He lived there from 1723 until his death in 1759. He became a British citizen in 1727. Almost all his works after 1723, amongst them many of his best-known operas, oratorios and ceremonial music, were composed and partially rehearsed in the house, which contained a variety of keyboard instruments, including harpsichords, a clavichord and a small chamber organ. Handel composed some of the greatest music in history, including Messiah, Zadok the Priest and Music for the Royal Fireworks. The museum incorporates the upper floors of its neighbour at 23 Brook Street, which was the home of rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix in 1968–69. The visit should last about 1h 30mins. The visit is self guided. Entry cost & the guided tour is £10 per person for Full Members and £12 per person for everyone else (payable on the day). ArtFund members are free. We are entering at two different time slots - 1:30pm and 2:30pm, so please indicate which slot when you RSVP. Afterwards we will head to the 'Barley Mow pub' 82 Duke Street a short walk from the museum at 3:30pm for a chat over a drink. If you can, please come to the pub afterwards, as its a great way to meet others after the museum visit. Please note, we only wait outside the station for 10 minutes after the advertised meeting time, so please be early or on time. If you can't see us outside the station, please text. Look out for the group sign. Hope to see you there! Robert 07905 901 834 (text only)
