Lovers of early music will be aware that the King of Hearts in Fye Bridge Street, Norwich, has been promoting concerts in Norwich for nearly 20 years. In fact, the venue will be celebrating its 20th anniversary in October.
But leading up to this milestone a number of fundraising events are planned to raise money to enable this well-loved venue to continue to attract top-quality baroque players to Norwich.
The first of these concerts, starting at 7.30pm on Saturday June 27, features the acclaimed Oxfordshire early music trio Musical Banquet - Adrian Boorman (counter-tenor), Tricia McLaughlin (viola da gamba) and Malcolm Pearce (harpsichord) - making their first visit to the venue. They'll play an attractive and entertaining programme comprising works by Dowland, Purcell and Lawes.
The director of the King of Hearts, Aude Gotto, has with her harpsichord-making husband Alan built up an enviable reputation that puts them firmly at the helm of the early music scene in Norwich and, indeed, Great Britain.

The quality of performance has always been at the central to the programming and to this end the celebrated baroque trumpeter Crispian Steele-Perkins - along with King of Hearts regulars The Brook Street Band - will be featured in the October festival.
