EXHIBITION - The largest Early Music Exhibition of its kind! A wide cross-section of early instrument makers from around the globe, shops, music publishers, societies, recording companies and early music forums all gathered under o­ne roof. This is the perfect opportunity to compare, contrast and hopefully buy the instrument you had always promised yourself! Exhibitors will show off their products in front of experts and clients and provide advice o­n all aspects of these instruments from basic servicing, finishing and string replacement to decoration and troubleshooting.

An array of superb instruments will be o­n display and for sale including harpsichords, clavichords, spinets, organs, viols, baroque violins, mediaeval fiddles, lutes, hurdy-gurdies, crumhorns, shawms, rebecs, pipes, sackbutts, trumpets, drums, tabors, and, of course, an incredible variety of recorders.

In addition there will be makers' demonstration recitals throughout each day (on the hour) sponsored by the makers themselves.
