Here are two upcoming events of particular interest:



City of London Sinfonia - The Fruit of Silence | Saturday 12th October 2019 | 7pm

Their first visit to Bradford; a musical event which explores the relationship between sound and spirituality, using the spaces and architecture of our building to help you see classical music in a completely new light. The music of Pärt, Vasks and Tabakova evoke the transcendental, with chant-like washes of colour and spellbinding soundscapes. Reserve a seat or a cushion, and follow the orchestra and Choir around the building as part of this spectacular event. 

You can get discounted tickets for just £5 from the City of London Sinfonia website.
