George Frederic Handel - born 23rd February 1685

There will be cake!

On Handel's birthday, 23rd February 2018, there will be free entry at Handel House from 11.00 - 6.00. Refreshments will be available to visitors throughout the day. Every hour, on the hour, there will be a 15 minute recital by members of the Amadè Players, starting at 11.00, the last one at 4.00 pm

Handel moved into the newly built house in Brook Street, London, in 1724 and lived there until he died in 1759. It was here that he wrote some of his most famous works, including Zadok the Priest, and The Music for the Royal Fireworks.

It is now called Handel House Museum with the mission to promote the knowledge, awareness and enjoyment of Handel's music to as many people as possible. Events include live performances, educational and outreach activities, and exhibiting and interpreting objects connected with his life.

In addition the museum promotes the diverse and continuing musical heritage of 23 Brook Street, through its association with Jimi Hendrix who lived there in the late 20th century.
