The Idler Garden PartyAs part of the National Trust London Project, Fenton House hosts The Idler Garden Party this July. The 17th century house in Hampstead will provide the perfect backdrop for a day away from the bustling city, promising merry-making, philosophising and drinking. The programme includes a gardening lesson and a recital of medieval Renaissance music in the orchard, lessons in Plato and the ukulele, and the chance to learn bartitsu, the Victorian gentleman's martial art. Tea, cakes and gin will also be served and an array of stalls will sell books, produce from local artisans and anarchist magazines.

About Fenton House

Set in the winding streets of Hampstead Village, the National Trust-owned, late 17th-century Fenton House contains an outstanding collection of porcelain, needlework pictures and Georgian furniture. It also boasts the Benton Fletcher Collection of early keyboard and musical instruments, most of which are in working order. More about Fenton House
