700 years of music from 17 European countries

Our theme for 2018 will explore Britain’s long and often tempestuous relationship with the rest of the Continent from medieval times onwards. Programmes will focus on important alliances, wars, trade, migrations, revolutions and dissolutions, examining the strong influences that have always flowed in from across the channel.
