Inspired by J S Bach’s 560 mile round trip walk to hear Buxtehude play the organ, we invite you to join us on our annual, shorter and more gentle stroll between two of East Northamptonshire’s beautiful villages. Supper tickets include a delicious two-course meal (food only) at The White Swan.
We are delighted to welcome two outstanding organists, Martin Baker and David Googe, who are also tutors on the Oundle for Organists course. They will present contrasting programmes to refl ect the qualities of each instrument including Bach, Buxtehude and improvisation in Fotheringhay, with Mendelssohn, Parry and Schumann in Woodnewton. The walk will continue whatever the weather!
Supper tickets include a delicious two-course meal (food only) at The White Swan.
Evening ends at approximately 10.30pm.
