Wonderful evening

It's a good idea to get there early as there were two musicians playing in the reception room and we were given a glass of champagne before our tour - all aspects of this event were really well done. Plenty of staff in evening dress to welcome us and guide us through, and the venue is fantastic. Really professional musicians and thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Classical music at a very high level. Even before the actual concert began, two young musicians got in the mood for the visitors.

Exceptional
