Enjoy a musical Christmas break

Join us on this classical Christmas break in the company of your host, concert pianist Jean Phillips. Look forward to in-house concerts and recitals of classical piano works and songs as Jean is joined by guest soprano Ruth Gomme and pianist Gary Branch. There will be a welcome concert, a carol concert and recital on Christmas Eve, while on Christmas Day you can celebrate with a traditional lunch and a light-hearted music quiz. Get Boxing Day off to a great start with a visit to Bodiam Castle, built to defend against French invasion during the Hundred Years War and now owned by the National Trust. Later return to your hotel for lunch and in the afternoon look forward to a recital from pianist Gary Branch, with a final after-dinner concert of ‘Delightful duets’ with Gary and Jean to round off your Christmas break. You depart the next day after breakfast.
