Change of venue
This event will now be held in the Holywell Music Room.
In traditional SmorgasChord style, we end our festival with a soirée, simply overflowing with music. In this event, we are thrilled to be able to display eight paintings by the exceptional artist Eva Frankfurther, a Jewish emigré who arrived in Britain in 1939. She lived her life mostly in Whitechapel, where she painted many of the newly arrived immigrants in her community.
We've chosen music that will complement these paintings, creating a playful dialogue between music and art.
This year our soirée is in three parts, and we will enjoy a short break with refreshments between each part. This evening will be a relaxed and laid-back event - feel free to arrive whenever you like!
