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
