The Leighton House Museum will be putting on a 'happening' — an immersive sensory haven, dedicated to the arts.

Taking inspiration from the works of the Pre-Raphaelites, each room will be transformed into its own special event space. One minute you'll be listening to Benjamin Britten and Bach in the Grand Hall, then you'll be drinking cocktails in the Secret Garden or listening to a talk on 'Humanity, Optimism & Beauty'... but don't forget to bring a handwritten love letter to deposit in the Fountain of Love and Beauty!


Talk about this event

Craig’s review of Leighton House Museum – “The Leighton House Museum is the architectural equivalent of opening up a brown paper bag and finding a diamond inside. This guy was an artist, and he lived inside a work of art. Don't be put off by the photo of the front. This house will never win any awards for the outside. It's not until you get beyond the entrance hall that you'll understand what all the fuss is… continued”
