Burghley at Twilight

Wednesday 2nd October - Saturday 5th October

Great houses like Burghley were built for entertaining and are often at their best just after the main visitors have left and the twilight seeps in through the windows which combined with the soft lighting of the artworks evokes the feeling of travelling back in time to when the House would have seen endless evenings of entertaining from supper parties to balls.

Join us for an evening at Burghley. Enjoy a glass of prosecco in the Old Kitchen, and walk through the State Rooms to the accompaniment of period music from classical organ and violin pieces; to Dante Ferrara, Elizabethan minstrel, serenading you with his faithful copies of original instruments.

Burghley at Twilight runs from 2nd – 5th October 2019, from 6pm – 8pm.
Tickets will be available to purchase from this page in advance of the event.

The Courtyard Shop will be open from 6 – 8:30pm.
