Sir John Soane, one of Britain's most influential architects, designed and built Pitzhanger Manor as his dream country retreat in what was then rural Ealing. He built Pitzhanger to showcase his skills, but first and foremost it was a place of entertainment, where he could host clients and influential friends at dinners and garden parties. Bach to Baby delighted in creating bespoke programmes that highlight the beauty of the Drawing Room, allowing our audience to time travel to the Regency period in style.
Lenham's Grade I listed tithe barn is the largest of its kind in the UK and was built at the end of the 14th century.
