Bach to Brazil

About the venue

The historic Barn Church in Kew was the first church in England to be build from a barn. The timbers come from a 17th-century barn in Oxted, in the far corner of Surrey. The Oxted barn was used at various times for cattle and the storage of hops and crops. The timbers clearly predate the barn itself – they were probably from ships that fought at the time of the Armada – and the Tudor panelling behind the altar may be even older. The north and south entrances are paved with ancient threshing stones. The church has a long tradition of its commitment to local families and the education of children is illustrated in a striking panel in the old Lady Chapel. After a Bach to Baby concert at The Barn Church, why not take a stroll to the Royal Kew Gardens which is just a few minutes' walk away.
