Playing the Benton Fletcher Collection at Fenton House

Seventeenth Century Spinet at Fenton House

We welcome enquiries from professional, student and serious amateur players of early keyboard instruments about playing our exceptional collection at Fenton House. Read on to find out how you can get involved.

We ask that all early keyboard musicians wishing to play instruments from the Benton Fletcher Collection meet first with our curator and attend a short, informal introduction. These introductions are offered one Tuesday a month. As availability is limited, please contact us well in advance using the following email address:

Pending approval to play instruments from the collection, musicians are encouraged to return and informally play the instruments for visitors during our open season, March to October. More details about this will be provided by email. Please note that visiting musicians who have not previously attended an introduction unfortunately cannot be permitted to play any of the keyboard instruments.
