Leith Hill Place Dorking Surrey RH5 6LY

Leith Hill Place will be the picturesque venue for a series of outdoor informal music performances on Sundays this August.

The historic National Trust house, formerly the childhood home of English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, is the perfect place for people to relax on a summer Sunday. Visitors are welcome to look round the house as usual, enjoying the Wedgwood exhibition, art installations and learning about the history and music associated with the house. The informal music which will be running each Sunday will hopefully be held outside (weather permitting) where visitors may bring a picnic whilst relaxing in the sunshine to the live music. The breath taking backdrop of the unrivalled views and a cream tea will make for a perfect outing for friends and family.

Childe Rolande is a six-piece electro/acoustic folk group originating in South East London. Like Vaughan Williams, the group draw their inspiration from the folk music tradition which has evolved over the centuries. They include some traditional pieces in their repertoire but much of the music is self-penned, often referencing historical events as well as myths and legends and drawing on the influences of contemporary, traditional and celtic folk.
