Three interesting events which I just saw on the RBS website:

To mark the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, White Lodge Museum is presenting a programme of public events to celebrate the rich heritage of White Lodge, a Grade 1 listed royal hunting lodge commissioned by George I in 1727, and home of The Royal Ballet School since 1955.

 

Thursday 3 May, 7.30pm (doors 6.30pm)

‘Let Everyone Sing and Dance’

A concert of 18th Century ballet music by Janiculum (soprano, tenor, violin, cello and harpsichord), including Handel, Bononcini, JC Bach, Pasquali and Anfossi, in the Salon at White Lodge.

If anyone can't make this event - the LJCC Fusion and Pavlova 2012 are organising a WL museum tour (also with transport - from Ivy House) on 28th June. This one costs £25. From the LJCC website:

http://www.ljcc.org.uk/events/2099-white-lodge-museum-tour.html:

Our excursion will include a visit to the Ballet Museum, a tour of the School and a talk by Museum curator Anna Meadmore on Anna Pavlova and the Fred Step - the link between Pavlova and British ballet.
