Forthcoming dates for your diaries:

Sunday 11th September, 3.00pm, Dartington Hall
An Astronomical Concert
A concert celebrating 200 years since the death of the astronomer William Herschel (1738-1822). Among his many vital contributions to astronomy was his discovery of Uranus. But he was also an oboist and composer of dozens of symphonies and concertos which deserve exploration. We are delighted to welcome Dr Matthew Spring, Research Fellow at Bath Spa University, to assess the relationship of music and astronomy in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Music by Herschel, Handel, Lully, Lawes and J.S. Bach.
See Concerts Page for programme.
Tickets £23 (students £5; Family ticket £46 for 2 adults + 2 young people aged 9-19)
As well as our Standard and Student rate tickets, for this concert we have introduced a 2+2 ticket, which we hope will encourage more young people to come along to the concert. Young people are very welcome to hear the music and discover something of how people saw the relationship between music and the heavens in the 18th century.

For the price of two standard tickets two young people can come and bring two adults with them.

When you book on the Dartington website book two Adult and two Student tickets and the discount will be applied at the checkout.
