Light divine, a night sublime

14 & 15 June
Enjoy a concert of Handel’s enchanting melodies in Chiswick House, with a picnic dinner in the Burlington Pavilion. This is the first time an exclusive concert of this kind has been held in Chiswick House.

To help you ensure that your evening is perfect, we are offering an exquisite range of supper hampers that you can purchase alongside your tickets. Will you choose gravadlax, English asparagus or fillet of beef? Discover our hampers.

The recital will include two sets, the first focusing on the superstar Castrati, and the second the fabulous soprano melodies Handel wrote for the leading divas of the 19th century. The evening will be conducted by James Bowman CBE, world renowned countertenor, who will share anecdotes from Handel’s London and insights from his esteemed career at the pinnacle of international opera.
