Secret Tudor Music at Advent
Hear moving music by English composers such as William Byrd and Thomas Tallis performed by Eboracum Baroque in the perfect setting for Advent, the family chapel at Oxburgh Hall. During the Reformation the Bedingfeld family would have been forced to conceal their Catholic faith. Experience the ‘secret music’ that composers such as Byrd composed to be performed intimately in households such as Oxburgh, during masses delivered by Catholic priests, who found refuge in priest holes much like the one in the King’s Room. Tearoom will be open for pre-performance and intermission hot and cold drinks and light snacks, including mulled wine.

September 2016 - Feb 2017
Oxburgh Hall repairs to the Dormer Window are under way.  Scaffolding is due to be erected during the last week of September but the house and court yard still remains closed. The gardens, walks, pantry and activities are still open to the public.
   
 2017
   
              
                                                       
                     Certain areas of Oxburgh Hall are closed to visitors until further notice.
Following the collapse of a dormer window from the roof of the West Wing at Oxburgh Hall which has led to damage to this part of the building and inner courtyard the decision has been made by the NT to close the Courtyard area to visitors – only a very restricted area will be accessible to National Trust staff.

This means that the showrooms, gift shop, tearoom, courtyard loos and second-hand bookshop will be closed until further notice.

The NT have been busy making the building wind and watertight, and engineers have been onsite inspecting the damage.

The plan is to now erect scaffolding, to allow NT experts closer inspection of the roofline and to then plan the full extent of the repairs required.

The grounds will remain open, as will the Chapel and the pantry. The hall has set up tables in one of the marquees on the lawn and stocked it with a selection of books from the second-hand bookshop.


NT says they hope to re-open as soon as they can, but only when it’s safe to do so. In the meantime, visitors are welcome to come and enjoy the grounds.
