Two Dates for your Diary

This week we thought that we would let you know about two dates that it would be a shame to miss out on – best thing is to get them in your diary straight away!

Solidarity Concert, Palais Garnier

Opera de Paris, 13th & 14th July 2020

Every year, the Opéra de Paris plays a concert live for Bastille Day.  This year, it is going to be live – and free – on Youtube!


14th July – Here is the link to view the live show.  It starts at 18:30 UK time!  You can also click on the video below.

Birdsong Online (UK only)

The show will be released online at 7pm on 16 July until midnight on 19 July.

Sebastian Faulks’s fourth novel is now a classic of modern English Literature.

“Birdsong is a story about the endurability of the human spirit and about the power of love. Sebastian’s novel highlights how even in times of unimaginable horrors, there is more that binds us together than breaks us apart. Never has this incredible story had more to offer and we wanted to find a way to share it at this time, 104 years to the day since the first day of one of the most terrible battles in British history..”
— Alastair Whatley, Artistic Director, Original Theatre Company

Narrated by the author himself, Birdsong will be available online – for 3 days only.  More information can be found by clicking here.

You will need an Original Theatre Company online account to watch this (created with an email and password).  The show will cost £15 to watch, but we’ve been told that it is worth every penny!
