Two of the major artistic aims of the London Handel Festival are to explore Handel in context by presenting works by his contemporaries, and to nurture and encourage young and unknown talent, as Handel himself did. We combine both in our ‘festival within a festival’ of baroque music, promoting three exceptionally talented groups of young musicians and all for the very affordable price of just £15!
