Thu 14th May 2020 20:00 - 21:15

As of 15 April 2020, following government advice relating to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we have taken the decision to postpone the Bridge Festival, due to take place from 14-17 May 2020. This decision stems from government advice regarding the closure of venues, and the restrictions on all non-essential social contact and travel, which would affect both our musicians and audiences. 

We are incredibly sad not to be able to bring you these exciting performances celebrating European music for strings and the innovative energy that drives the ensembles who create and perform this rich shared musical history. We hope to reschedule the festival for later this year, but for now feel this is an essential decision to support the continued safety of our players, staff and audiences.

All our bookers should receive full information from the RCS box office/TicketWeb in the coming days – please bear with us as we set up this system. Full refunds will be offered, but already purchased tickets will also remain valid for the postponed event. 

We will continue to monitor the situation and follow government advice regarding our future festival date. We will update our audiences and stakeholders as quickly and regularly as we can.

aural-visual feast of razor-sharp music and movement

The Bridge Festival curtains part to reveal a glittering playground of curious musicians and dancers. In dream-like sequences, through the wild landscape of Lutosławski and the overwhelming precision of Bach, they move together, creeping, stuttering, slinking and juddering towards their epic climax: Beethoven’s Grosse Fugue – played from memory. Music that has been ridiculed and praised, derided and celebrated. This don’t-miss, critically-acclaimed production is alive with musical intrigue, subconscious exploration, and dance caught between ecstasy and our darkest thoughts...

“You leave feeling as if you have gorged on the very stuff of life. Chaos, calm, disharmony, beauty, fear, connection, isolation – it’s all here, conveyed through music, movement or both.”

Over 14s only. U16s must be accompanied by an adult
