Visiting for a performance

The performers usually give two or three performances of about 20-30 minutes each. There are some chairs set up in the performance room, and the audience is encouraged to drift around the house listening to the music, rather than sitting for the whole performance. In good weather it may be possible for some groups to perform outside. Entry is free for National Trust members, but admission charges apply for non-members.

Giving a performance

If you are part of a group who would like to perform at Leith Hill Place, please email us. Please note due to the size of the performance room, group size is limited to 15 performers.
