Join us after hours to experience ancient music first hand. Grab a glass of wine and follow the sounds of the aulos as Barnaby Brown processes through our atmospheric gallery, bringing the statues to life and playing the most popular instrument of the ancient world.

This event is part of the University of Cambridge's Festival of Ideas. For more events across the city, check out www.festivalofideas.cam.ac.uk.

Pre-book online at https://aulos.eventbrite.co.uk.

For adults. Free.

***THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED***

Although Festival events become fully booked, there can be spaces available at the last minute. We suggest that if you are interested in joining a queue for people without reservations, you may do so (15 minutes before the event starts) but we cannot guarantee that spaces will become available.

 

Barnaby Brown creates new music by exploring distant musical cultures. Inspired by living traditions and archaeological evidence, he has gradually travelled further back in time. His latest project has been playing the aulos for David Greig’s version of The Suppliant Women by Aeschylus at Edinburgh’s Royal Lyceum Theatre
