DESCRIPTION

The Museum is a memorial to Holst, one of England’s most respected composers, best known for his work The Planets. It is one of only two composer birthplace museums in the country.

The house was built in 1832 and is typical of the many smaller Regency terraced houses built in Cheltenham at that time.

Gustav Holst was born here on 21st September 1874 and lived here until 1882, shortly after his mother died. He died in London on 25th May 1934.

Visitors will learn more of Holst’s life, his music, his family and friendships, whilst being reminded of domestic life at the end of the 19th Century.

We are a small, independent museum governed by the Holst Birthplace Trust, registered charity number: 1078599.
