The Concerts Group organises visits to afternoon and evening classical concerts in Bristol and Cardiff, travelling by coach from Thornbury with pickups en route. A range of seat locations and prices is offered.
Bristol Beacon re-opens on 30 November 2023 and we have booked two concerts in 2024. Details of the concerts booked are given in the linked page.
We have booked two concerts in the Cardiff Classical Series at St David’s Hall, Cardiff, in November & January. The concert on 14 January has been moved to the Hoddinott Hall and tickets allocated on a first-come basis. We were able to obtain exchange tickets in Rows E & F. All seats are £12.00 and we will receive a partial refund shortly.
** UPDATE 31 October
The report on the testing of the roof panels at St David's Hall shows that major remedial work is required before the hall can be re-opened and the recommendation is to proceed with a long term solution, basically replacing the 900 panels in the roof of the hall. This was adopted by the City Council on 26 October. AMC, who are managing the hall, will then need to sort the details and obtain planning permission for this listed building. They intend to complete the work before the next Cardiff Singer of the World in 2025 and will be paying for the work, subject to agreement on changes to their lease.
There is no group subscription for the 2023-24 season.
