Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone

October 28, 2017

The chance to immerse yourself in the wonderful world of the Boy Who Lived is here once more with this extra special concert, taking us back to where it all began. Now Muggles (sorry, No-Mags) and Witches and Wizards alike can experience the magic in a whole new concert presentation, combining the beloved first movie in the series on a towering HD 40ft screen and the transfixing score by maestro John Williams, in an evening that will transport you back to the Wizarding World one more time.

Itzhak Perlman

November 18, 2017

The Grammy- and Emmy Award-winning Israeli-American is renowned as the pre-eminent violinist of the 20th century after coming to prominence at the tender age of 13 on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1958. Despite losing the use of his legs due to polio, he has overcome the odds to become one of the most successful violin virtuosos in the world and his haunting music work has featured in movies including Schindler's List and Memoirs of a Geisha.
