Ten things you need to hear at this year’s Winter Festival

We’ve just unveiled this year’s Winter Festival programme. You can explore more on our website to check out what’s coming up in East London this December, but to get you started, we’ve picked ten must-see events that are coming to Spitalfields this Winter.

  1. Festival debuts from the brightest stars: B’Rock, The Riot Ensemble, Les Arts Florissants, The Marian Consort and Solomon’s Knot make their first appearances in Spitalfields this December with explosive sounds, old and new.
  2. The dinner party of 2015 with Disappearing Dining Club. Incredible food fused with the delicious sounds of Mara Carlyle and Liam Byrne. It’s going to be special so make sure there’s a ticket with your name on.
  3. The return of festival favourites: The Sixteen and The English Concert return to add some sparkle to your winter evenings.
  4. A musical adventure for little ones in a new Musical Rumpus show inspired by the incredible Australian Lyrebird that can turn any sound into song.
  5. See new works come alive in our new Works in Progress. Watch performances from Troupe, Born Mad, Mira Calix and a collaboration between the OAE and Club Inegales, and at the end, talk to the artists and tell them what you thought.
  6. Sit back, relax and make music: wrap yourself in sound in a Rocking Chair which you’ll see around Spitalfields throughout the festival.
  7. A Scandinavian winter voyage: She’Koyokh leads us on a magical journey through the season with winter songs, traditional tunes and feel-good klezmer music.
  8. Make music with us: join us for Spitalfields Sings, a vocal workshop led by the incomparable Laka D. A celebration of some of today’s best-known singer/songwriters including Joni Mitchell and Laura Nyro.
  9. Upbeat tunes to rock your winter celebrations: some of East London’s most talented young musicians join forces for a toe-tapping extravaganza in Platform.
  10. Music from memory: for their first festival performance Solomon’s Knot aren’t making things easy, presenting Bach’s glittering Christmas Oratorio – all from memory. Prepare to be dazzled by Bach’s Christmas masterpiece as you’ve never heard it before.
