@bbcphilharmonic - Fri 7th Jun 2019 - return to Blackburn to conclude the 2018/19 Classics Series with a fairy-tale sound world, hints of the Russian Revolution and the New World Symphony.

With the help of Sleeping Beauty, Prince Charming, Beauty and the Beast and Tom Thumb amongst others, Ravel leads us into a fairy-tale sound-world in one of his most exquisite creations. Prokofiev’s First Violin Concerto, composed against the turbulent backdrop of the Russian Revolution, vividly captures a world in flux – it’s a roller-coaster ride for both listener and soloist, tonight featuring the brilliant violinist Ye-Eun Choi. After the premiere in New York of Dvořák’s richly melodic ‘New World’ Symphony, the audience simply went wild and soon Dvořák collars, ties and walking sticks were all the rage! 
Pre-Concert Talk:  Simon Webb, General Manager at BBC Philharmonic, discusses the evening’s programme with Ye-Eun Choi.  The talk will commence on the raked seating at 6.30pm.  Tickets cost £3 and include a complimentary drink.

Student tickets just £3 from the box office.

Rich Hall live in #Blackburn
Thursday 20th June 2019

Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed new show begins its second leg of touring. There has never been a better time to be an American comedian in the UK. Hall’s precision dismantling of the tenuous relationship between two countries is as freewheeling and deadly accurate as ever. His BBC Four documentaries, most recently Rich Hall’s Countrier Than You and Rich Hall’s Presidential Grudge Match and BBC Radio 4 series Rich Hall’s (US Election) Breakdown have built him a new legion of followers, as has appearances on Have I Got News For You and QI. But if you’ve only ever seen Hall on TV, you’ve short-changed yourself.

As close as it gets to a guaranteed good show” (Scotland on Sunday)

The Hoedown begins as a withering dissection of Trump’s America, but ends up being a celebration of Americana. There’s stand-up, improvised ballads, cracking good musicianship, and ultimately a hilarious, foot-stomping, shit-kicking good time to be had by all. Even if you don’t own a hoe. “Blissfully Funny” Guardian

An Evening of Eric and Ern - Friday 20th September 2019

Ian Ashpitel and Jonty Stephens are the Olivier nominated duo behind the hugely celebrated and critically acclaimed West End Hit: Eric and Little Ern.

This is a brilliant homage crammed full of renditions of those famous comedy sketches, that hits all the right notes! From Greig’s Piano concerto to Mr Memory, “Arsenal!” It’s a show full of Morecambe and Wise’s most loved routines, songs and sketches and of course a musical guest. This wonderful show, evokes memories of times when whole families would huddle around the telly on Sunday evenings. “You have the giddy out of time illusion that you are watching the legendary double-act live” – Independent “I never thought i’d see Morecambe and Wise live – I think I just have!” – Ben Elton

The ultimate romantic ballet, Giselle is a tale of innocence, love, betrayal and madness. With music by one of the 19th century’s best composers, Adolphe Adam, and choreography by the late Nicholas Beriosoff, @viennafestivalballet’s traditional staging of this 1841 masterpiece moves from the sunny optimism of Giselle’s idyllic village life to an ethereal world of mystery and menace.

@the_halle Friday 12th April 2019

This special concert celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth, on 11 April, of Sir Charles Hallé, the orchestra’s founder. As well as being a pianist and conductor, Sir Charles was also a composer and we have a fascinating chance to hear one of his works in an orchestration by C. M. Wagner. 
In the first half, after Beethoven’s stirring overture, the orchestra’s hugely talented Assistant Conductor Jonathon Heyward is joined by Heejae Kim, winner of the Terence Judd-Hallé Orchestra prize at the 2015 Leeds International Piano Competition. Her interpretation of Mozart’s lovely G major concerto is hugely anticipated. Sibelius, working on his Fifth Symphony, wrote, ‘It’s as if God the Father had thrown down the tiles of a mosaic from heaven’s floor and asked me to determine what kind of picture it was.’ Though his shifting of the tiles was a long and arduous process, his picture ends in triumph, the swinging phrases of what he called his ‘Swan Hymn’ ringing out in life-affirming fashion. 
Pre-concert talk: Jonathon Heyward in conversation.  The talk will commence on the raked seating at 6.30pm.  Tickets cost £3 and include a complimentary drink.
