Discover the wonders and elegant surroundings of Sledmere House in a special and unique way. The House and Church are the venues for two concerts this summer, performed twice in one evening, with the audience changing places after a picnic interlude.

Having gained a reputation as one of the UK’s fastest-rising choirs, Pembroke College Choir present music from their acclaimed album All things are quite silent, conducted by Anna Lapwood.

Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective is a flexible ensemble of joyful and passionate musicians who can’t wait to share chamber music with you. In the elegant surroundings of Sledmere House, they explore the charm, wit and memorable melodies of Reynaldo Hahn and his circle.
