Built in 1582, Lauderdale House is an arts and education centre based in the beautiful Waterlow Park. We run an extensive programme of performances, workshops, outreach projects and exhibitions. We also hire our historic galleries for parties and weddings.
Lauderdale House runs a broad range of educational, community, and creative projects in addition to its regular programme of classes, performances, and exhibitions.
We enjoy working with different partners, and in the past we have been involved with exciting projects such as creating grass sculptures with young people with learning difficulties from the local Harington Scheme, and professional artist Kathryn Jordan. The sculptures were then exhibited on the tea lawn at the back of the House.

Picnic Jazz with John Etheridge's Sweet Chorus
- 9 July 2015 7-7:30pm
Bring along your picnic basket and your blanket for a chance to enjoy John Etheridge's Sweet Chorus perform on Lauderdale's Tea Lawn. John Etheridge formed Sweet Chorus in 1998 as a personal tribute to Stephane Grappelli, the greatest violinist of Jazz, with whom he had toured for many years in the late 70s and early 80s. The band takes its cue from the great Reinhardt /Grappelli repertoire of 1930s classics but is in no way a slavish imitation of that music . Inspired by Grappelli’s always questing spirit, the band evinces dazzling forays into repertoire from all periods ..always engaging and committed.
