Informal music at Leith Hill Place

As the childhood home of composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, Leith Hill Place lends itself to being filled with music. Many local groups and performers support the house and carry on Ralph's legacy of sharing and creating new music.

Alongside the more formal concerts, a varied selection of local groups and individuals will be filling the house with music on weekend afternoons. These informal performances are free to enjoy, but admission charges to Leith Hill Place still apply.  


Visiting for a performance

All of these performances are free, with normal admission to the house. 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.
