Tamas Szigyarto neo-romantic piano recital at Lauderdale House @ Lauderdale House
Feb 22 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Tamas Szigyarto, London-based pianist and composer, presents selected works from two original piano cycles: There Will Be Rainbow and Cone Of Silence, recently released by Navona and Oclassica labels respectively.

The two works, written in neo-romantic style with a touch of impressionism, present a musical dyad. There Will Be Rainbow is bright and optimistic whereas Cone Of Silence reflects on the darker themes of solitude and melancholy. Both cycles accumulate material written over the past decade. Finally, there will be performance of piano poem Blue Hour written by Tamas and his creative partner, pianist and composer, Elena Oleynik.

Heritage Talk 2024 – That’s Entertainment! @ Lauderdale House
Feb 24 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Join us to discover the history of three local venues: Lauderdale House, Jacksons Lane and Upstairs at the Gatehouse.

Speakers from three of Highgate’s key entertainment venues join us for a special Heritage Weekend talk! With each building facing uncertain futures at one stage or another, this talk will provide a fascinating insight into the transformations and challenges involved in converting each into the venues we know today.

 We will hear from Nick Peacey, one of the driving forces behind Lauderdale House’s conversion to an Arts and Cultural Centre, alongside John Plews – long time manager of the award-winning Upstairs at the Gatehouse theatre. Finally, we will be hearing from the team at Jacksons Lane and their amazing journey from derelict church to thriving community venue!

Heritage Talk 2024 – A Warm Welcome @ Lauderdale House
Feb 24 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Highgate has more than its fair share of locations if you’re looking for a pint, a bite to eat…or a historic ceremony involving antlers!

Originally a village outside of London, Highgate has long been a welcoming spot for travellers and visitors alike. Join us for this fascinating talk as we discover the history of some of its more interesting watering holes!

Hear from an expert on the history of the local pubs and hostelries and open your eyes to some of the more bizarre rituals such as the ‘Swearing of the Horns’. You’ll find out all about St Joseph’s Parish Centre, which has hosted everything from boxing matches to beauty contests and is still the cheapest pint in Highgate! And we chat to Kate Fugallo who ran the Lauderdale café with her husband Salvatore,  from 1985 to 2014, helping take the organisation from one century into another! As she says, ‘we didn’t realise when we pitched up in 1985 it would turn out to be a major part of our lives and of our childrens’.
