Shostakovich String Quartet No 8 in C minor, Op. 110

An extraordinary collage of music, poetry and dramatic readings, performed by the cast of the National Theatre’s The Lehman Trilogy, Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles with Ensemble-in-Residence The Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective. Using extracts from Julian Barnes’ novel The Noise of Time, the artists explore the true story of Shostakovich’s deeply personal Eighth String Quartet, famously composed in only three days.


Town Hall, Main 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.

There is no tiered seating at this venue for any of our Festivals.
