Late Night Sessions

 

Our late night sessions ensure there is even more music to enjoy after our evening concerts.

A different musician leads the session each night and everyone is welcome to join in – bring your harp along or any other instrument, or just relax with a nightcap whilst soaking up the atmosphere.

 

Our late night sessions are held each night in the Festival Club (Theatre).
