In a 400th anniversary tribute to Shakespeare, this performance unites the best and brightest of Britain’s young choristers and jazz musicians. With a programme inspired by the bard’s plays and poetry, the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and the National Youth Chamber Choir come together for a rich tapestry of musical takes on Shakespeare: including Vaughan Williams, Swingle Singers founder Ward Swingle, and a rare performance of Duke Ellington’s 1957 Such Sweet Thunder suite.

One of the best and most original programmes I can remember

Town Hall

The Town Hall, situated on Imperial Gardens in the centre of Cheltenham comprises of a Grand Main Hall, distinguished by its Corinthian styles columns and coved ceiling. The Main Hall is accompanied by dining and drawing rooms, as well as the Pillar Room bar.

The venue’s early 20th century Edwardian elegance makes it the classic ‘shoebox’ concert hall. With a seating capacity of 900, the Town Hall is perfectly suited to grand symphony orchestra performances with a thrilling impact.
