And for younger audiences members, there is music from Wallace & Gromit and Beauty & the Beast.

Some of the most famous stage and film musicals of all time were written by either Rodgers & Hammerstein or George & Ira Gershwin.

Both feature in our concert in the form of Carousel Waltz and the overture to Strike up the Band.

Perhaps Nottingham’s most famous couple (other than Robin Hood and Maid Marian) are Torvill & Dean and the concert will also feature Ravel’s Balero, the memorable music to which they won Olympic gold back in 1984.

the concert is on Saturday, January 28 at 7pm.

Tickets are £7 to £22 (family tickets available) on 0115 989555 or
