The world’s most beautiful music, the finest in the new generation of established international musical talent, a wholly new approach to performance, and an astonishing venue are the four unique ingredients that go into creating Amy Dickson Invites…
On Saturday 29th February 2020 the Duke and Duchess of Rutland will be opening their remarkable home – Belvoir Castle – to Brit Award winning and Grammy Nominee Amy Dickson and her special invitees, Adam Barnett-Hart (violin) and Simon Mulligan (piano) for a soiree that includes fine classical music, an immersive experience moving around the exquisite public and private rooms of the spectacular castle seen to such wonderful effect in the Netflix series The Crown, and a fine-dining experience in the State Dining Room
Re-creating the atmosphere of a classic English country house party, and in the presence of His Grace, The Duke of Rutland, the essence of an Amy Dickson performance is elegance, informality and understatement; Amy and her world class artist colleagues performing only feet away from the audience; virtuosity and perfection at first hand with none of the stiffness of the traditional concert experience.
Hosted by Stewart Collins, the prime mover of some of the world’s most elegant and exclusive music festivals including the Henley Festival (UK) and the Holders Season (Barbados), classical saxophonist Amy and her musical colleagues will perform at several points during the evening as we listen to music that resonates with the history of a castle that has been the home of the Manners family for five hundred years and the seat of the Dukes of Rutland for over three centuries.
The 11th Duke of Rutland and Amy, in partnership with the Prince’s Trust, invite you to share an evening that includes a champagne reception, musical performances throughout the castle, a three course fine-dining experience in the State Dining Room and the additional opportunity to stay overnight in the Castle’s magnificent bedrooms.
