A Baroque Christmas

We are truly delighted to open our 2021 Christmas Festival in the company of The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment – one of the most innovatory, entertaining and thoroughly engaging ensembles in the UK. Working together since 1986, OAE started out by throwing out the rulebook and since then have shocked, changed and mesmerised the music world. Today the OAE is cherished more than ever. It still pushes for change, and still stands for excellence, diversity and exploration. More than thirty years on, there’s still no orchestra in the world quite like it.
