Then I Play’d upon the Harpsichord: A Musical Evening with Queen Charlotte


An immersive and delicious experience

Join award-winning City Music Foundation artists Ensemble Hesperi Saturday 20 August at 7pm for a musical evening celebrating Queen Charlotte of England, wife of George III, and her deep love of music. 

Arrive at our unique Georgian venue, Six, Fitzroy Square, and settle in for an informal evening of the sort Queen Charlotte loved to organise for her family and friends. While the musicians perform, you’ll be able to enjoy tea and freshly baked biscuits popular in the 1760s. You may even be asked for a card game or two! Acclaimed actor Miranda Keeling will dramatise snippets from Charlotte’s own diaries, and the memoirs of her lady-in-waiting, Charlotte Papendiek.
