By Popular Demand – An Extra Concert

Tickets for Haydn’s The Creation are selling fast and only returns are available for ticketed Great Hall events so an extra concert is being presented by Southwell Music Festival to meet demand for tickets.

The Classical Cabaret will take place in the historic theatre above the Old Theatre Deli on Market Place, Southwell at 7.30pm on Friday 22nd August.

With some of Britain’s very best young professional musicians in town for the Festival weekend, the wide-ranging programme will feature a vocal quartet performing Elizabethan madrigals – perfect entertainment for a summer evening, and a virtuoso brass quartet playing a variety of baroque ensemble pieces.

The price of the ticket includes a delicious buffet supper and, following an extended interval, the audience will be entertained by eight string players performing the magnificent Octet by Felix Mendelssohn.

The concert will end at approximately 9.30pm – in good time to move to the Minster for Light out of Darkness – the candle-lit concert of words and choral music beginning at 10.00pm.

Tickets for the Classical Cabaret are £20 full price and, for under 18, £15 including supper provided to the Old Theatre Deli’s usual high standards.  There will also be a full bar service (drinks are not included in the ticket price).  We very much regret that there is no wheelchair access to this part of the Old Theatre Deli.

The theatre has limited capacity so to avoid disappointment please do not delay in applying for tickets:
