Come and share Sir Roger Pratt's assessment of Raynham by booking tickets for the recital weekends in June and September, or the annual performance of The Royal Academy at Raynham in April. After you have enjoyed the harmonious experience in the Marble Hall, feed the inner man or woman with a supper picnic (NB. Not available for the Royal Academy of Music evening).
You can book supper places in the State Rooms but we are limited to 50 places in total. Circle of Friends members are entitled to free places, normally £10 per person. Book early to avoid disappointment.
Bring your own complete picnic or choose from the menus on the website. The supper-in-a-box option @ £23 per person provided by Belinda Ellis is always delicious. Enhance your evening even further with Raynham Champagne, on order or for sale on the night. Water is provided but not glasses.

Matthew Wadsworth (theorbo & Lute}, Julia Doyle (soprano) & Nathaniel Mander (harpsichord).
17th century London and Venice were veritable melting pots for artistic talent, scandal and creative thinkers alike. What better to evoke the passions and torments of life in London than the wonderfully fused song, art and poetry of John Dowland and Henry Purcell and, in Venice, by the exquisite masterpieces of three of the most daring composers of the time; Francesca Caccini, Claudio Monteverdi and Barbara Strozzi. A wonderful blend of poetry and music, which is as moving to the soul today as it was 400 years ago. With a sizzling early C18th intervention by Nathaniel Mander on the harpsichord which will have you sitting on the edge of your seats.
