NEWENT LIBRARY – SCARECROW CRAFT SESSION for children
Come and have some fun making scarecrows!
Once again, the Newent Orchestra has delved deep into its priceless filing-cabinet archive to bring forth a cornucopia of greats, ranging from Eric Coates’sLondon Suite - Covent Garden; Westminster; and (remember this?) the famous In-Town-Tonight theme, Knightsbridge,… to Mozart’s delightful A Little Night Music, topped off with an exciting Suppéoverture. And so much more.
The summer starts here with Newent’s annual family festival of light classical music.
Tickets, door only, £8.00
£7.00 concessions; children free
Includes interval tea/coffee.
Conductor: George Taylor
