Penny Brohn UK

Help change life with cancer. For good




Bristol’s newest chamber group Los Picantes presents a fund-raising event for Penny Brohn UK in the gorgeous environment of the Garden Room and grounds of the PBUK National Centre in Pill, just outside of Bristol.

Combining live music with an own-provided picnic in a Glyndebourne-style event, the audience is invited to arrive from 7pm to picnic in and enjoy the grounds.

Four acres of outstanding landscaped gardens surround the National Centre’s beautiful Ham Green House, a Grade II listed Georgian property.

Los Picantes‘ 40-minute performance in the Garden Room starts at 8.15pm – and there is further opportunity to enjoy the gardens afterwards. The venue will close at 10pm.

Los Picantes comprises five of Bristol’s leading non-professional musicians in the unique formation of flute, clarinet, violin, bassoon and harp. The group performs beautiful and powerful music from predominantly European and UK origins.

Los Picantes‘ programme for Brohnbourne is:

  • Achangelo Corelli (1653–1713): La Folia variations, Opus 5, No12
  • A. Mozart: Serenade No 11 Second movement (Adagio)
  • S. Bach: Wachet auf BWV 140, Nr4: Chorale
  • Stefano Landi (1587-1639): Augellin
  • The Parting Glass (Irish traditional)

The chamber choir In Accord will perform outdoors in the gardens from 19:30-20:00.

  • In Accord is a recently-established group of experienced non-professional singers performing music from across Europe to the Caucasus and the Americas.
  • At Brohnbourne they will sing classical music with a French flavour from the Renaissance to modern times.

Maximum capacity for the event is forty-two Garden Room audience members.

Address of venue:

Penny Brohn UK, Chapel Pill Lane, Pill, Bristol, BS20 0HH

There is plentiful car parking on-site.
