Netherby Hall in Cumbria has its origins in a 15th century tower house, which was altered and extended in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. A recent multi-million-pound restoration has seen the property transformed, creating nine luxury self-catering holiday cottages and apartments, as well as conference facilities. 

The hall is now launching a monthly series of classical music concerts starting on 23 September 2022. Each concert will take place in the Netherby's Oak Hall with the option of having a post-concert dinner in the orangery. The performances at Netherby Hall are part of the Absolute Classics concert series, where visiting musicians tour the region performing at different venues as well as inspiring the next generation through their work with schools and young people. During the concert season, the visiting musicians perform at Netherby Hall; Cochran Hall, Kirkcudbright; and Easterbrook Hall in Dumfries.

The series begins with cellist Max Beitan and pianist John Thwaites in Franck, Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky & Piazzolla on September 23 followed by Oxana Shevchenko, piano, in Mozart, Brahms, & Prokofiev (October 21), Filip Pogády, violin and John Lenehan, piano (November 18); Adam Laloum, piano, Clémence de Forceville, violin, and Benedict Kloeckner, cello (December 9); Anna Fedorova, piano (January 20); Solem Quartet (February 10); and Tabea Debus, recorder and Jonathan Rees, gamba (March 17).
