Fanny was the daughter of Charles Burney, a music historian, composer, and musician.

Francesca said: “The Burneys have been at the core of my research for almost 25 years, and it is a joy to see that the incredibly rich legacy of this multi-talented family is now being discovered by the wider public.”

The ticket price for non-members is £2.50.
