The FSO's March concert is a little different from usual. Its aim is to appeal to music lovers of all ages and it therefore draws upon a wide range of popular works, many familiar to younger generations as film theme tunes. We are particularly excited to welcome local actress, Katy Ashworth, who will be familiar to younger audience members from her work with CBeebies, to narrate the timeless story of Peter and the Wolf. Well known for presenting the TV programme 'I Can Cook', Katy featured in the inaugural CBeebies prom at the Royal Albert Hall in 2014. The concert will take place at 14:30 so make sure you make a note of the unusual start time. We look forward to welcoming you to an exciting afternoon of musical fun.
