Celestia at the Barrow & Flax Festival

Celestia - 31 July 2022

Sunday 31 July at 5pm, Barrow Gurney church

David Ogden conducts his professional vocal ensemble Celestia in a varied programme of the very greatest choral works of the last half-millennium.

A long interval gives audience members a rare chance to visit the beautiful gardens of Barrow Court, and enjoy a Glyndebourne-style picnic in stunning scenery.

“Celestia had me crying with raw emotion and grinning like a happy loon… I’m floating home”

Raise the Roof singing day at St George’s Bristol

Raise the Roof

Saturday 19 January, 11am – 4pm, St George’s Bristol

Join David, members of City of Bristol Choir, and fellow fans of musicals and films for an unashamedly indulgent day of singing blockbusting hits from stage and screen. Now in its eight successful year, the day culminates in a grand (but very informal) showcase performed by the day’s ‘cast’, accompanied by a live band. £14 for adults, £5 students/under 18s from St George’s box office

Colston Hall Big Anniversary Sing
