A Handel Celebration; Nadège Rochat and Judith Jáuregui will perform a programme for cello and piano A Poet’s Garden; and acclaimed English tenor, Ian Bostridge will present Shakespeare Songs. Pre-book formal dining The Macbeth Menu – at Lismore Castle by Eunice Power, and a choice of gourmet table picnics at Dromore Yard by Eamo & Ró.
