The show, titled ‘Handel and the Music of Gin Lane’, will be performed by Sirinu, who present a cross section of early 18th century musical life.

The music will range from street bands of cleavers and hurdy-gurdy, to the Roast Beef Cantana and some of the earliest published children’s songs.

Sirinu consists of Sara Stow (soprano and harpsichord), Matthew Spring (lute and hurdy-gurdy) and Camilla Scarlett (baroque violin).

The group also take inspiration from Handel and William Hogarth.
