Trip to London
Tuesday 27 February 2018

An afternoon visit to the Charles1: King and Collector exhibition at the Royal Academy, followed by an evening Royal Philharmonic Concert, 'Myths and Fairytales', at the Cadogan Hall. 

The exhibition reunites for the first time the legendary art collection of Charles I, this having been sold off following the king’s execution in 1649. It includes over 100 works of art by some of the finest artists – Titian, Holbein, Dürer, Van Dyck and Rubens.

For those purchasing entrance to the exhibition, you will receive a free exhibition guide book (normal price £2:50).

The concert includes Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain, Tchaikovsky’s wonderful Violin Concerto, performed by the immensely talented Yi-Jia Susanne Hou, Sibelius’ mesmerising Nightride and Sunrise and  extracts from Khachaturian’s Spartacus Suite.

We will leave at 1:30pm, and return to the King George V car park around 11pm. The coach will transfer us to Sloane Square around 5pm - so there will be time for a meal in one of the many restaurants there, or a shop in Peter Jones!, before the concert starts at 7:30pm. The ticket price also includes a free concert brochure (normal price £4), and these will be handed out to you at the hall before the concert starts.
