Tue 27th September - The Night Shift
The Night Shift is all about taking world-class classical music out of stuffy, fusty concert halls into places where other people are – pubs, clubs and bars. This one is classic Night Shift – a string trio playing Baroque bits and pieces by people like Purcell and Gabrielli. On the stage there will be two of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s leaders, so you can be guaranteed some incredible playing. Grab a beer, grab a seat (if you can), and listen to world-class musicians performing some of the 17th century’s biggest hits.
Entry: £10, £5 for students. You can book a ticket in advance here.
