Culture Vultures Attend the Queen’s Chapel, Marlborough Rd. and the Chapel Royal, St James’ Palace
Saturday 24th February : 10:30
The Serjeant of the Vestry, Jon Simpson, has very kindly agreed to give Culture Vultures a private tour of these chapels - a great privilege and treat! The plate is sumptuous, as are the Van Dyke’s in the Upper Room at the Queen’s Chapel. The visit will last approx. 1.5 hours, after which we will adjourn for lunch nearby. Numbers are limited. Cost £40 which includes lunch and a donation to Her Majesty’s Chapels Royal. Security clearance required beforehand.
Culture Vultures go to the Opera
SATURDAY 10th March 2018 : 17:30
Former Choral Scholar (2015-16) soprano Soraya Mafi has landed the role of Tytania in English National Opera’s production by Robert Carson of Benjamin Britten’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, based on Shakespeare’s popular comedy. Britten’s opera follows the consequences of a falling-out between the fairy-king Oberon and his queen, Tytania. Mistaken identities, confused lovers and alarming transformations are the result! We have tickets in the front of the Upper Circle at the London Coliseum for the 7.30pm performance and will enjoy a 3 course supper beforehand (drinks, tea/coffee extra). Tickets all in £70.
