Bringing together history, art and music

Jonathan Weeks

Jonathan Weeks, amateur historian, musician, and raconteur


Jonathan brought us an extraordinary collection of replica medieval instruments, some acquired and some he had made himself. He told us of their history, how they made musical sounds and then played every one of them. The music was sometimes hilarious and sometimes charming. His lecture was amusing and most entertaining. We were all absolutely captivated, and want him back again

A highly entertaining and informative lecture with the added dimension and pleasure of music from the instruments, expertly played by Jonathan. A great Christmas treat. I already have had requests for a repeat for the future
