The Night Shift puts classical music in new places, without the usual rules.

Enjoy live music in the beautiful grounds of Kensington Palace at this outdoor summer event. For a special Royal Night Shift, we’re playing songs by one of The Night Shift’s favourite composers, George Frideric Handel, who wrote music for the Royal stars of the Palace’s Enlightened Princesses exhibition. 

And in a Night Shift first, we’re also tackling some of pop’s most Handelian moments, rearranged for our band by Benjamin Tassie.

So bring a blanket, your prosecco and your picnic and listen to world-class musicians from the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment demonstrate how 18th century composers influenced our modern playlists today.

A picnic box includes:

Oven roasted sweet tomato, rocket pesto and mozzarella wrap, packet of crisps, apple, brownie, small individual bottle of red or white wine.

It will be available to collect on arrival from 18.30 on Friday 18 August 2017.

If you have any dietary requirements we advise you to purchase an event ticket-only for £10.00 and bring your own food/drink.
