Early Music in Spring 2017

There are lots of opportunities to hear (and make) medieval and renaissance music at all kinds of interesting venues within our shire in the coming months.

The events listed all include at least some “SCA period” music, sometimes in a mixed programme.

If you’re feeling inspired to sing, the Thamesreach Minstrels practice regularly and perform at our revels and other events.
