Friends of Buxton Festival Spring Recital

Mozart String quartet Op 33 No 5 (Russian) | Mozart String quintet in G minor K516 | Dvorak String quintet in E flat Op 97


Lord and Lady Manners extend a personal invitation to Haddon Hall, one of the most romantic buildings in Derbyshire, which “slept” for 200 years.

The Hall, possibly the finest example of a fortified medieval manor house anywhere, is the setting for a recital by a string quintet from the Northern Chamber Orchestra. On arrival, there will be a drinks reception and canapes in the Banqueting Hall before heading to the Long Gallery for the music. During the interval guests will be able to go into the Rose Garden and explore the grounds with a glass of bubbly.

The Hall has been used as a setting for many films, including The Princess Bride, but was once a real “sleeping beauty” when from the 1700s to the 1920s it lay dormant until the 9th Duke and Duchess of Rutland restored the house and gardens.
