Ever since 1994’s seminal crime thriller Timecop, it’s been hard to imagine a more genuine experience of time travel.  But on 31 July, we’re knocking 300 years off the calendar for an entirely 1700s edition of The Night ShiftDon’t worry, we won’t be dressing up in ruffles and wigs, but what we will be doing is taking to the stage at Wilton’s, a building that can trace its history back to Handel’s days in London.  Director Laurence Cummings is joined by mezzo-soprano Renata Pokupić for an evening featuring some of the composer’s most dramatic arias on instruments specific to his lifetime.  It’s a unique classical event where you can drink, clap and chat when you like – after all it’s the 1700s (the rules haven’t been invented yet).

“Absolutely brilliant! Loved it and keep them coming!”
