Due to COVID-19, it is with heavy hearts that we inform you that our artistic programme will be suspended until the advice changes. Read our full statement.


Celebrated violinist Jack Liebeck is joined by a host of leading musicians for a night of nature-inspired Romantic works.

The centrepiece is Elgar’s epic piano quintet which, according to Lady Elgar, was inspired by strangely-shaped trees at Flexham Park. As local legend had it, they were the forms of sacrilegious Spanish monks forever encased by lightning in the trees.

This is prefaced by Schumann’s Waldszenen (Forest Scenes) for solo piano, Dvořák’s From the Bohemian Forest for cello and piano, Rebecca Clarke’s delightful Midsummer Moon which evokes a peaceful and magical moonlit landscape, and the famous melody Edelweiss which is sure to have the audience humming along.

Date & start time:Sun 17 May – 6.30pm
Venue:Hall One
