Performances in the Cosy Courtyard of Eskbank House and Museum

Eskbank House and Museum will host two classical performances by Mitchell Conservatorium and a colonial play titled “Pioneers in Petticoats” during 2015 in the historic Courtyard Gallery.

“When the Courtyard at Eskbank House was enclosed in the 1920s it became a local space for entertainment. It has now come full circle with this new season of concerts and plays,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Maree Statham. “I look forward to enjoying many charming performances there into the future.”

Mitchell Conservatorium will be presenting two Concerts in the Eskbank Courtyard as part of its 2015 season. George Mertens and Ella Jamieson will be performing Vivaldi, Bach, Kummer and ancient Hungarian Village Dances at 7.30pm on Friday 10 April 2015.

On Friday 7 August 2015 at 7.30pm, Mitchell String Quartet members Andrew Baker, Nicholas Newell, Fiona Thompson and Sybbi Georgiou will be performing a chamber music concert, including music by Borodin, Glazunov and Mozart. Tickets for both concerts will be for sale at the door. (Adults $30, Concession $20, Family of Four $80, School aged MitCon students FREE).

Pioneers in Petticoats will be presented by Blaxland and Daughter at 2.00pm and 6.00pm on Saturday 30 May 2015. This delightful play brings to life four charismatic colonial women who helped shape today’s Australia. Written by Wendy Blaxland and staring Australian stage and screen actress Bridget O’Sullivan, the Courtyard at Eskbank House is the perfect setting to experience this beautiful play. Tickets cost $24, discounts for families and groups (10+) and can be booked by calling (02) 47306932 or going to www.tickets4me.com.au.
