Music, film & theatre


Sat 16 May 2020



Cancelled, hopefully to be rescheduled


Lend your voice and join our pop-up choir to help celebrate spring and the National Trust’s 125th anniversary.

Welcoming the arrival of spring a select number of properties will host a 4 minute anthem that will be passed on, via a singing baton, every 5 mins to the next property.

The Springsong anthem will start at Alfriston Clergy House, the first house to come under the National Trust’s care in 1896.  This wave of song, with lyrics inspired by National Trust supporters, will then flow across the South East, finishing here at Waddesdon at 12.15pm.

No experience needed. Just come along, meet new people, discover Waddesdon and have fun.
