October Revolution Centenary Concert – Sunday 22nd October
This concert seeks to explore the October Revolution in Russia as a source of creative inspiration for artists.
Composers in the post-revolutionary period were challenged to construct a new innovative musical language with which to depict and promote the radical new social order. A celebration of this dynamic new musical landscape, this concert will transport the audience from the music of Imperial Russia, featuring the work of Rachmaninoff and Glazunov, to the music of the Soviet avant-garde of Mosolov and Roslavets and the searing mid-century works of Shostakovich and Prokofiev, ultimately arriving at the jazz-inflected work of Kapustin.
The repertoire will be performed on piano, cello and viola by students of Trinity Laban Conservatoire, The Royal Academy of Music, The Royal College of Music and the University of Oxford, who are all in some way associated with The Charterhouse.
The October Revolution Centenary Concert will be held in our Great Chamber here at the Charterhouse between 4 – 5pm.

Garden Tours – Tuesday 10th April
Join Claire Davies, Head Gardener at the Charterhouse, for a rare opportunity to enter our enchanting and secret garden. In April spring will be in the air and many of the bulbs will be in bloom. The glorious magnolia trees should be displaying their splendour as well as the wisteria. There will be plenty of colour in the beds and it is very much an all year round garden, so it is constantly changing and there is always something to look at.
The next garden tour is on Tuesday 10th April from 10.45 to 11.45am. Tickets cost £20 per person.
‘many wonderful plants and planting ideas – will unashamedly steal’, ‘it was stunning!’
