Hallé Relaxed Concert

We are delighted to welcome you to Hallé St. Peters for our first ever Relaxed Concert. This is an opportunity for you to experience some popular classical music in an informal and relaxed way. In other words, there are no rules!

The concert will be approximately 40-50 minutes with no interval. There will be short introductions from our players before each piece to give you some background context to the music. At the end of the performance, there will be a Q and A session where you can ask questions or have a chat with any of the players.

Café Cotton will be open before, during and after the concert should you wish to purchase any refreshments. The Foyle Room (an extension of the Café) will also be available at all times, should you need to take a break during the performance.
