In addition to our flagship classical music experience DEBUT at Shoreditch Treehouse (No.1 Airbnb Music Experience Globally 2018) we have enjoyed sharing our unique and friendly approach to concerts in London at the Royal Opera House, Cutty Sark, Brunel Museum’s Thames Tunnel Shaft, Old Operating Theatre, Old Bayham Abbey with Lamberhurst Music Festival and in Dorset at Poole’s Lighthouse, Chettle House and Russell-Coates Museum.
