Supper tickets include a delicious two-course meal (food only) in The Old Rectory Barn Courtyard (main course with vegetarian option and pudding, accompanied by seasonal vegetables and fruits grown in the garden) or The Vane Arms (fish pie or Iberian bean stew and pudding), or bring a picnic supper to eat in the delightful garden of the The Old Rectory. Drinks will be available to purchase as will tea and cake before the walk.

Two outstanding young musicians, Oliver Wass (the first harpist ever to win the Guildhall Gold Medal, the Guildhall School of Music’s most prestigious prize) and Luba Tunnicliffe (First Prize winner in the 2016 St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition) join forces to play music by Bach, Bax, Britten and Tchaikovsky.

Instructions about where to meet will be sent to walkers nearer the time.

Evening ends at approximately 10.30pm

Supported by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust and The Old Rectory Gardens.
