We are delighted to announce that the Holst Birthplace Museum becomes ‘Holst Victorian House’ on the 10th September. This fascinating local museum where British composer Gustav Holst was born in 1874 gives visitors an insight into his life and an opportunity to view some of his personal items, including a piano on which he composed The Planets.

What can visitors expect from the newly rebranded Holst Victorian House?

Visitors will be able to explore the lives of some of the other inhabitants, including Holst’s parents, both in Victorian and more modern times.  This wonderful hands on attraction is considered a time capsule of 19th century life with a working Victorian kitchen, Victorian bedroom, scullery and nursery. It is also unique in being the only period house in Cheltenham open to the public.

The museum also hosts a range of exhibitions, events and children’s activities throughout the year, including its popular ‘Bake Back in Time’ events using the working coal-fired range.

The team look forward to welcoming new and return visitors to 4 Clarence Road and sharing with them the experience of living in a Victorian home.
