September 4th - Aurora Voices return to the Cramphorn Theatre with a programme of classic songs from top West End Musicals including Wicked, Beauty and the Beast and Ragtime.

I am writing a book at the moment called ‘Composer in the Community’ and nothing represents the essence of this title better than the lunchtime concerts we celebrate today.

I am hugely grateful to the people who have made today possible, to the artists that make every Wednesday so inspiring and to our loyal audience who make it all so relevant and worthwhile.
