Marylebone Summer Festival - Saturday 13 June

A day of history, film and magical music.



240 years in the making, the Marylebone Music Festival brings back music of the Marylebone Pleasure Gardens which fell silent in 1777.

During their time in the 18th Century, the Pleasure Gardens were known for their elegance and sophistication and were renowned for their entertainment, of which Marylebone was said to be the greatest.

Watch this wonderful historical moment, with these lost songs recorded exclusively for the Summer Festival at Marylebone Village resident studio Air-Edel as part of their 50 year anniversary. Watch now on Instagram.

 

Saturday film night.

Our film recommendation is independent British film, Evelyn, directed by and starring the Oscar winning Orlando von Einsiedel, who in this moving documentary, turns the cameras on himself as he and his parents and siblings embark on a journey in remembrance of their brother and son, Evelyn, who took his own life over a decade ago.

The film is available to view now on Netflix.

The beautiful music score was worked on by composer Patrick Jonsson, including an original song by Gwendolen von Einsiedel and was recorded, produced and mastered at the Air-Edel studio in Marylebone.
