In a single street in London, separated by a wall, are the homes of two of history’s most significant musical artists. 25 Brook Street is the house that belonged to George Frideric Handel and the place where he composed some of the world’s most enduring baroque music, including Messiah. On the top floor of 23 Brook Street is the flat where, two centuries later, Jimi Hendrix lived with his girlfriend, record player and guitar. Both were the homes of musical innovators who chose London and changed music.

Battle of the Guitarists

  • 25 November 2017 11am-5pm

Join us for a day celebrating Hendrix’s influence on the electric guitar.

Just two days shy of what would have been Hendrix’s 75th birthday, we’re opening up the doors of Jimi’s former home for a special day dedicated to riffs, jams, and solos.

Any guitarists out there, just bring your axe to 23 Brook Street at any point throughout the day and take part in our battle-of-the-bands style competition. Play us your best Hendrix riff and be in with the chance of winning a series of prizes, including the chance to host your own private party in the Hendrix Flat!

There will be an iconic Marshall stack to plug into, plus a variety of bespoke guitars to try out as well.
We’re very excited to partnering with brand new guitar shop Sixty Sixty Sounds, which has just opened it’s doors on Soho’s legendary Denmark Street.
Plus there will be burgers (Jimi’s favourite) served all day courtesy of the good people at MEATliquor.

Play or just listen, everyone’s welcome!

The Pioneer of Panto

  • 15 December 2017 7-8pm, 8:30-9:30pm
  • 16 December 2017 7-8pm, 8:30-9:30pm

What’s Christmas without a pantomime? When Handel moved into his house on Brook Street, John Rich was entertaining the London crowds with a new form of theatrical comedy. For the first time ever at 25 Brook Street, Handel House presents an extra special evening of Georgian pantomime, harlequins and ballad opera. All of this will take place in different rooms of the house. It’s panto, the like of which hasn’t been seen in London since the 18th century.

Tickets: £30
