A sumptuous concert to celebrate our 75th anniversary!

Feast

The centrepiece of our grand anniversary concert has been described as ‘epic’, and rightly so. William Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast is an exhilarating ride through the story of the King of Babylon, and brings huge choral and orchestral forces together for an edge-of-your seat experience.

We’re also celebrating the 150th anniversary of the birth of Ralph Vaughan Williams with his Classic fm chart-topping piece, The Lark Ascending and two other fabulous works, O Clap your Hands and Five Mystical Songs.
