SUMMER BAROQUESTOCK, NOW!!

Three BBQs,
Three Bands,
Three Summer Nights
This summer, Baroquestock brings together home-cooked food with soul-lifting music from the past three centuries. As well as our own band, we’ve invited two world-class ensembles who are, like us, passionate about playing music on original instruments, and like having BBQs.
We start with perhaps the greatest innovator of modern music, Arnold Schoenberg, and his masterpiece Transfigured Night, written in 1899. And Schoenburgers.
We then rewind a couple of centuries or so and gather round for an evening of trio sonatas and smoked pork shoulder buns. Our grand finale features one of Haydn’s more quirky symphonies nicknamed ‘La Poule’. Accompanied by the Happy Haydn Chicken Meal, it will deliver delicious BBQ’d chicken+salads on a new level. A feast for the senses.
You’re a veggie? Don’t worry, we’ve got a non-meat BBQ too.
See options below.
