Bringing Classical Orchestral Concerts to Westmorland

Christmas Concert by Royal Northern Sinfonia on Saturday 2nd December:
The concert is nearly sold out online, however we are making additional seating available; further tickets will be available online shortly, and on the door.
Car parking: Abbott Hall car park will be closed. There should be lots of public car parking available near to the church, or you can use Kirbie Kendal school car park if you wish to.

The candlelit Christmas concert in Kendal Parish Church is going to be a fabulous experience, with music from the 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, a display of Christmas trees, and mince pies and a glass of something sold in aid of the church’s restoration fund.

BACH ¦ Concerto for Oboe, Violin, and String Orchestra
TELEMANN ¦ Concerto for Four Violins
VIVALDI ¦ Concerto for Flute, Oboe, Two Violins and Continuo
