THE LONDON NOVELLO ENSEMBLE
Grab a drink, grab a concert... One of London's best kept secrets and one of its most relaxing ways to spend a Sunday afternoon!
The London Novello Ensemble is a group of professional musicians who came together with the aim of making classical music more widely accessible without dumbing it down. They give concerts with the high musical standard of the concert hall but without the associated formality, instead favouring the easy-going surroundings of wine and cocktail bars.
Places are limited to a maximum of 70, so be sure to book yours early. Be prepared for good music, talented playing and the occasional non-classical musical surprise. Some tickets may be available on the door, but advance booking is advisable and cheaper.
The bar will be open for drinks and snacks from 2pm and throughout the concert. The musicians will be staying around to chat over drinks after the concert, when they and concert attendees have exclusive use of Bar Topolski’s cosy Arch 3.
