Head here for our headliners.

Head here for our headliners. Our 2000-seater concert hall is the place to hear everything from minimalist sounds reimagined to iconic music you’ll probably recognise – including Carl Orff’s explosive choral work Carmina Burana and the symphony that changed classical music forever, Beethoven’s Eroica. The charismatic Miloš blends classical guitar with the Beatles. And the soundtrack is the star in the Academy Award-winning love-letter to the silent film era The Artist (PG), screened here with a live performance of its toe-tapping score.
