Beethoven (arr. Hummel) Symphony No 3 in E flat 'Eroica'

Revolutionary poetry from a man who was actually in Paris in 1789, and revolutionary music from a composer who wished he had been. Discover how these two disappointed revolutionaries, both born in 1770, illuminate each other through their art.


Seating in our venues will be laid out in line with the UK Government’s COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the festival. At present we are selling to full venue seating plans, in line with the proposed lifting of restrictions on the 19 July. If restrictions are not lifted, we will be reverting back to socially distanced seating, and we may have to refund tickets for later bookers if capacities remain restricted.
