Christmas market cancelled!

Given Guildford's move into Tier 3, we have with enormous regret taken the prudent course and cancelled the event.  Fingers crossed for next year's Christmas market - meanwhile, stay safe.

 

1. Now with subtitles! Catch our "Beethoven: Tradition and Innovation" lecture/recital online, on our YouTube channel - it's in two 30-minute parts.

About the lecture

In celebration of Beethoven’s 250th anniversary year: our Autumn lecture was given by Prof. Erik Levi of Royal Holloway, University of London, with cello support by Jo Levi.  

The duo provided insights into Beethoven's development through his cello sonatas, highlighting his trajectory from tradition to innovation.

Erik Levi is a distinguished academic musicologist, pianist, music journalist and BBC broadcaster - and a Guildford resident and GTA member. His wife Jo Levi is a professional cellist, and also a member.

 

2. Our annual mini German Christmas Market cancelled!

Bring a little touch of Freiburg to your Christmas, with our German-themed mini market. German wooden toys, bakery, gifts, stocking-fillers, new and secondhand books. Covid precaustions in place - please wear a mask!
