The Bishopsgate Institute Christmas Cracker

It's going to be a Cracker

Got your tickets yet? Hopefully you'll have already heard about the very special festive offering we're serving up this Christmas.
We're giving you the chance to get into the holiday spirit, but without sitting through the same old songs and carols. We'll be adding a fresh flavour to festive classics with three very special concerts in December. From jazz to classical, renowned musical directors Jennifer Whyte and Ben Ferguson have pulled together some of the season’s top pieces into an irresistible ensemble.

The concerts will feature world-first performances of specially-commissioned arrangements of some festive favourites, well-known numbers, and original works by Whyte, the composer-in-residence, all performed by an elite orchestra and singers Alex Young, Charlotte VaughanMichael Conway and Toby Hine. It promises to be a musical celebration with a twist, to get you in the mood for the holiday season.
