Easter Weekend

Good Friday 14 – Easter Sunday 16 April See All Events

Our Easter Weekend juxtaposes youthful energy and profound contemplative music.

Bach’s great St John Passion is given a dramatic chamber performance by Solomon’s Knot, the Marmen Quartet play meditative works by Bach, Beethoven and Philip Glass, while the cobwebs of winter are well and truly blown away by the power of the Britten–Pears Orchestra under the baton of inspirational American conductor Marin Alsop. They perform Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra and Britten’s Young Persons Guide to the Orchestra, which is repeated in a family concert on Easter Sunday.

Throughout the weekend there will also be a host of family-friendly activities around the site, including a Farmers’ Market and an Easter Egg Hunt.
