Following his 2016 New Year sellout, Rainer Hersch (BBC Radio 4 & Classic FM) takes to the stage once more with his very own band of madcap virtuosos to welcome the New Year with an unforgettable evening of laughter and fab music.

‘Whether you are a professor of harmony or couldn’t tell a string quartet from a string vest, this is the funniest concert you’ll ever see’ (Time Out

Nothing is safe from the comic maestro as he whips through witty arrangements of the classics. Yes, it’s a classical concert Jim but not as we know it – all bound together with his award-winning stand-up comedy.
