Winter Festival
Winter is here! And what better way to welcome in the new year than with our wonderful Free Winter Concerts 22 January - 23 March. All of these special music performances are completely free to attend and all take place at lunchtime in beautiful churches across the City. So if you need a break from the mundane, and want to reinvigorate your day, come inside and enjoy the music.
