Intern Diaries: Christmas lights and festive cheer in Spitalfields

Spitalfields is looking prettier than ever since all the Christmas lights are up in the market and festive cheer is in the air! The Spitalfields Music Winter Festival is now underway, after opening last Saturday with the Christmas Market in Crispin Place which saw puppetry, fashion and of course, live music to get people into the Christmas spirit!

It has been really busy here at Spitalfields Music HQ. The Winter Festival now the Winter Festival is in progress and I am really excited as this is the first time I’m working at our various venues in Spitalfields!

I also recently attended the City of London Sinfonia’s first ever CLoSer event! It was amazing and had a really relaxed atmosphere. After the main performance, individual musicians were available for informal Q&A sessions. The Strings Masterclass event was held at Village Underground which is a great venue (it used be a Victorian warehouse!) I also discovered that the trains on top are actually offices used by the Village Underground staff. There are two more CLoSer events coming up in 2012; head over here to find out more.

I have also been working on our Winter Festival Learning and Participation events’ inserts, and they have been sent to the printers which is very exciting! The festival has an awesome mix of events for the whole family which means we will be drawing in great crowds – I can’t wait!
