To celebrate our 50th anniversary year we are hosting a gala concert which will feature performances by the Maggini String Quartet (University Associate Artists and Honorary Fellows) and baritone Ross Ramgobin (alumni) accompanied by Sally Goodworth piano. 

The concert is based on a performance that Isambard Brunel staged in November 1827 in the partially completed Thames Tunnel. The 50 distinguished guests dined under a gas fired candelabra and were entertained by a uniformed brass band. Inspired by Brunel’s example the programme for this gala concert comprises of music from the Victorian period.
