Event Navigation


If you like your early music adventurous, ground-breaking and different, then look no further. Finery & Filth combines early music, spectacle and stand-up comedy. This show, set in 1695, takes the audience through a vivid and ribald tale of Restoration London. In the first 15 minutes you will hear the hurdy gurdy, cittern, two songs by Henry Purcell and a song about a farting contest – all gems from the late 17th century! The story progresses and by the end of the one-hour show you will have…

• been taken into The Old Bell in darkest Hammersmith to relive the bawdiness of The Catch Club, frequented by The Restoration Rat Pack;
• heard what happened when the Earl of Rochester met Henry Purcell and set him a rather interesting challenge;
• heard 19 songs and tunes, and
• participated in four songs and sung one in its entirety
However, a warning – the bawdy language of some of the songs makes this performance unsuitable for under-twelves.

Tickets £7 in advance (£8 on the door) from Bernard Allen (703360), Mike Cox (672387) Isobel Turner (708781), Philip Waller (701013)
