Concert Theatre Works uses imaginative production techniques to bring music to life. Soup and bread cooked on site are passed to foster a sense of ritual and inclusivity. Audiences rove freely among the costumed artists feeling the original hand-made part-books, all illuminated by candlelight. Help us celebrate Byrd’s activism by entering a living museum – a concert experience like never before.

Performances at 6pm and 9pm, with a pre/post concert discussion “Vibrancy of monastic life and sacred polyphony” at 7.30pm – this free talk is a tie-in event, bookable with Secret Byrd tickets, subject to availability.
