Live festive music
Offering an eclectic mix of styles, periods and performances, the Spitalfields Winter Festival is an ideal way to escape the hustle and bustle of the high street at Christmas; forget your Christmas shopping, your table and menu plans, the endless work dos and the thousands of cards you have to write, and relax with the soothing sounds of the choirs and orchestras as they make festive music.
For those that like their traditional music at Christmas the Spitalfields Winter Festival caters in abundance. Opening the extravaganza will be a performance of Gawain Hewitt’s Conversations, which transforms the sounds of London and Dhaka into music. Also taking place on Friday 5th December 2014 is the concert by Tower Hamlets Sings, who are joined by early music specialists Ex Cathedra in what is certain to be a fantastic live performance.
