Post 108: Testing, testing

We have all had a very enjoyable moment trying out the new Studio for size. Having only really imagined it on paper the excitement of actually sitting in the room was instructive as well as entertaining. A number of the HH team helped carry and arrange the additional seats we will need for concerts or gigs in the room but we still felt that we needed to make it more authentic.  So the ever ready Simon and his crew helped us carry the harpsichord base into the room to see what it would be like with that taking up space in the room as well. We were spared the do you know the piano is on my foot – no you hum it and I’ll play it gag, but we did have a bit of a Stevie Wonder moment when, above and beyond the call of duty, the builders pretended to be members of the band.

Despite the light-hearted moment it was very helpful and we are going to make some minor adjustments which we think will give us some more flexibility. We look forward to our first proper events and concerts in the room starting next February. Look out for more details on our website in November.

Enthusiasm: Real
Progress: Two large steps forward and may just an ever so half step back 
Quote: “Ok I know I promised not to change anything – but I changed my mind.”





About Sarah Bardwell

Handel & Hendrix in London Trustee and leading the team that is reinstating, in the adjoining building, Jimi Hendrix's London flat to open to the public. Quirky twist of chance meant that baroque legend Handel lived at 25 Brook Street in the 18th century and that rock legend Hendrix lived next door in the 1960s.
