The Curtain Rises project at Seaton Delaval Hall 

A £7.5 million project is underway at Seaton Delaval Hall, which will see repair and conservation work carried out across the hall and estate. We've been awarded £3.7million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to bring new life to Seaton Delaval Hall for visitors and the community and put the drama back into Northumberland’s most flamboyant ‘party’ house. Our most ambitious conservation project to date, the work will take us until 2022 to complete.

History

Andrew Soulsby playing a harpsichord in the Central Hall at Seaton Delaval Hall

Music for Pleasure & Passion 

The Delavals had a reputation as entertainers and were passionate about the theatre and great patrons of the arts. Classical musician Andrew Soulsby pays tribute to the Delaval's love of theatre and music with a programme of harpsichord music by some of the finest eighteenth century composers. Watch as this grand space is once again filled with a music and festivity.
