3 Choirs Festival

(Herefordshire Festivals and Shows)

      
Hereford Herefordshire England
Description : 

The Three Choirs Festival has its origins at the end of the 17th century in visits by the lay clerks of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester to one another's cathedrals for joint services and informal singing. More formal annual 'music meetings' can be traced back to around 1715 and have continued ever since, interrupted only by the two world wars, making this the oldest continuously running classical music festival in the world. The event rotates between the three cathedral cities on a three-year cycle. The next festival takes place in Hereford 28 July - 4 August 2018 and is the 291st Three Choirs Festival.

The Three Choirs Festival Chorus is largely drawn from auditioned members of choral societies in Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester, with the largest contingent each year coming from the host city. Amateur choral singers have been taking part in the festival since the middle of the 19th century to augment the cathedral choirs of boy trebles and male altos, tenors and basses.

The heart of the festival will once again be the Festival Hub, located in Hereford Cathedral School, where concert-goers and passers-by can find hot and cold meals as well as a bar and cafe, a free art exhibition and a friendly place to meet friends or spend a quiet moment.

Families are also welcome, with plenty of events for children, including an introduction to the wind quintet with the Magnard Ensemble, a dark retelling of Hansel and Gretel performed by the Goldfield Ensemble for teens and adults, shadow puppet storytelling with string quartet, and drama, drumming and puppetry workshops.

Black and White House Museum

(Herefordshire Attractions)

      
Hereford Herefordshire England
Description : 

History Lives Here !


bw 2A magnificent Jacobean half-timbered building in the heart of Hereford City, now a wonderfully preserved house, furnished in period style. 

Built in 1621 and home, in the past, to butchers, saddlers and bankers, explore the rooms which give a glimpse into daily life during the 17th Century.

The Black & White House Museum is a very welcoming place in the heart of the city. The house was built in 1621, and the museum gives an insight into 17th century life: after passing through the reception area and shop (where you can buy replica goods from the civil war period), the ground floor room tells the history of the period, with plenty of information panels and a model of Hereford at the time.

Moving upstairs to the re-created rooms from the 1640s, the museum visit becomes a lot more interactive: there is a dressing up rail of clothes, and visitors of all ages are encouraged to try them on and even to have pictures taken around the dining table.

The second floor has reproduction furniture and visitors are encouraged to be hands-on here - try out the bed and see how it was put together, discover what the bedstaves were for (to loosen up the bedding), and to examine (but not use!) the 'stool of ease.' Finally, don't miss the prodigal son story on the wall hangings in the smaller bedroom.

The museum is a welcome slice of history in the
centre of the commercial heart of Hereford and well worth the visit.

"loved dressing up and activities"
"it was amazing, it was great, we loved it"

The whole focus of the museum is firmly on the 17th Century and visitors can dress up and fully immerse themselves in the period.

Enjoy the hands-on activities for children and look out for special family events.
