For these mini-concerts hosted by Bach to Baby we take inspiration from the harp, an instrument popular at the time that residents Eliza and her husband, architect Sir John Soane, lived at Pitzhanger.

About Bach to Baby

Bach to Baby is the critically acclaimed classical concert series for babies, toddlers and their carers. Tots dance, roam about and revel in the wonder of live music, while you take a moment out of your busy day to hear top notch performances by outstanding musicians, with your young babes in tow. No concert is complete without crying, feeding, dancing and nappy changing!

#Selfies LIKE ITS 1804

Sir John the collector and architect created the infinity-effect using mirrors in his interiors. Catch your reflection, take a selfie and share with your friends!
