Shakespeare Cocktail Concert


This event has been and gone.

In the ravishing setting of the Guildhall Art Gallery, sit at a small table and enjoy a cocktail, while City Music Foundation Artists and Patrons present a Shakespeare themed evening of words and music.

Actor Simon Callow, soprano Joan Rodgers and pianist Roger Vignoles, all three patrons of the innovative City Music Foundation, will provide an evening of varied entertainment.

They will be joined by young professional artists currently participating in the City Music Foundation programme, including soprano Raphaela Papadakis.
