Purcell and a Pint

Join Eboracum Baroque and York Gin for an evening of rowdy drinking songs, popular fiddle tunes and delicious York Gin!

In collaboration with our friends at York Gin, we’re delighted to return to York Mansion House for Purcell and a Pint. The concert will transport you back to the alehouses of 17th century England. Taverns were raucous surroundings and overflowed with music, alcohol, sex, gossip, fights, fumes, shouting, singing, laughing, dancing…. Our performance won’t have all of those! Free drink of York Gin on arrival. 

We’ll be performing a mixture of instrumental tunes and songs by Purcell and lots of his contemporaries to create our own 17th century pub gig. Audience participation is a must!
