Back in the boozer

Wed 24 Jul 2013

As many of you know, running alongside our ‘regular’ concerts we have a now well-established late-night series, The Night Shift. Now running for 7 years, the series presents our music in a relaxed late-night setting where many of the usual conventions of concert-going are suspended.

Just three days left to help us…

Wed 19 Oct 2011

There’s only a few days left to help us reach our £1200 goal, letting us take our Night Shift gigs to London pubs all over the capital.

We’re so grateful to everyone who’s donated already and we’re nearly there…but even with a sell-out crowd, each event loses a little money, once the musicians, DJ, room hire and publicity have all been paid for – so we need YOUR help to make up the difference and to make them happen.

We’ve got £400 left to raise- if just 80 people gave a fiver, we’d reach our target!  In return, there’s loads of thank you’s up for grabs, including a pint with the players, a VIP package at a future event or even a group hug from the office team.

So if you’re feeling generous, please do spare a few pounds to help us make this great project possible.

You can read more about the project and donate online here.

Only a week left to help make our pub tour possible…

‘Music in a pub? I see no reason not to like it.’

So said our presenter Jon Jacob when talking about our very first pub event this September. And we agree – what could be better than listening to great live music in your local?

 

Our Night Shift series of events has been pushing the boundaries of classical concerts for a while, with late-night performances that get rid of some of the often rigid etiquette of classical performances. We’ve brought a different vibe to our Southbank Centre home and also explored venues including the Roundhouse and Village Underground, taking classical music to unexpected places.
