Last Chance to See Catches and Glees Exhibition!

Our current exhibition about catch and glee culture in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries will be running for just ONE MORE WEEK (until March 14th). Do come and have a look if you can. But don’t worry if you can’t make it, the exhibition guide will remain available on our website here.

Highlights include a naughty catch by Purcell (Once, Twice, Thrice I Julia Try’d…) and Thomas Arne’s drinking song Which is the Properest Day to Drink (hmm, let’s think about that, oh yes, ‘each is the properest day I think’).
