Stowe Arts Autumn

Besides being an important historic house and garden, as well as a public school, Stowe also has a lively arts programme. The programme begins on 9 September with a concert by Stowe School's new music scholars and exhibitions and there are further opportunities to hear accomplished Stoics in action during the term. The pianist Anthony Hewitt will be playing Scriabin's preludes alongside those of Debussy and Rachmaninov, whilst images of Klara Smith's cut out structures are projected. Other visitors include the flute duo Luminance, and the jazz-fusion group The Fresh Dixie Project. Other events include theatre from Kill the Beast and children's theatre.  The autumn season ends with the Christmas Tree Festival with a seasonal mixture of music, theatre and spoken work

Stowe House Preservation Trust has recently opened a discovery centre in the hither-to unseen wine-cellars of House and there is a chance to tour the house during school holidays, plus a programme of talks and twilight tours. And of course the gardens are cared for by the National Trust, which runs its own family-friendly events programme and for the Heritage Open Days this year on 12 September, both house and gardens are open free..
