Afro Celt Sound System formed more than 20 years ago when Simon Emmerson brought a group of musicians from the UK and Africa to Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios. Since then, they have released a "trail-blazing" (PopMatters) fusion of African and Celtic music, bringing together "an irresistible blend of rhythms and lilting spirituality aimed equally at the head, heart and feet" (BBC Music). They perform following the release of their latest album, The Source. "I can guarantee it's a unique and unmissable spectacle," says Folk Radio of their live shows.
Rabindranath Tagore (1861 - 1941) was a legendary Bengali polymath and the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in 1913 for Literature. He remains the only figure to have composed lyrics for the national anthems of two countries: India and Bangladesh. Join The Tagoreans, the oldest Bengali cultural organisation based in the UK, as they explore the creative work of Tagore and its impact on the national identity of India. The evening will include songs, poems and excerpts from plays and dance dramas in Tagore's original Bengali compositions as well as in English.
As I sat, coming to the frightening realisation that the script I'd been writing for ten years no longer fit in a world that was spiralling out of control, my mother called to tell me the Duke of Wellington, a porcelain figure my father bought for £750 as an investment in 1974, had broken while dusting. It seemed there were three problems to be fixed - the script, the world and the porcelain figure. The Duke playfully mixes fantasy and reality, taking audiences on an imaginative and touching journey full of laughter.

An icon of Twentieth Century modern music, Herbie Hancock has enjoyed unparalleled artistic and commercial triumphs during the 40 years he has been in showbusiness, including six Grammies and an Oscar.
Berlin-based contemporary composer Nils Frahm has built a steady reputation for his intimate, poignant piano recordings, yet they so far only showed a fragment of what to expect from a Nils Frahm concert. Frahm's heart lies in improvisation, in the magic of a moment where, inspired by the space and the audience, his fingers can create new compositions loosely based around his familiar melodies.
Firmly established as a world-class producer, songwriter, DJ, multi-instrumentalist, orchestral composer and cultural pioneer, Sawhney has become a latter-day Renaissance man in the worlds of music, film, video games, dance and theatre.
