Stars and Stripes 2016
Join us on Tuesday 8 November – the day of the US Presidential Election – for an evening of entertainment at the iconic Royal Festival Hall, on London’s vibrant South Bank.
Appropriately, this year’s concert features music by the leading American composers of the 20th century – including Gershwin, Barber, Bernstein and Copland – performed by a line-up of top international performers.
There’s music from the Broadway too, in the form of hits from the musicals of Rodgers and Hammerstein. The concert concludes with a world premiere organ-and-orchestra arrangement of Stars and Stripes Forever, written especially for the event. Tickets are available from as little as £12, with premium seats available for £60 – all include a souvenir programme.
Make a complete and memorable evening. Before the concert, we’ll welcome you at at “Lenny’s”, our authentic pop-up American diner – all tips go to charity! After the concert, we invite you to experience New York during the “Roaring Twenties”, complete with Art Deco interiors, live jazz and a touch of Great Gatsby glamour. Tickets are priced at £30 and £70 respectively, the latter including champagne, bowl food and canapés. Consider our attractive packages at £140 7 £150 for a complete evening with both receptions and the concert.
So, whatever your political persuasion, we look forward to seeing you on Election Night to celebrate the Great American Dream, and to unite in support of an organisation that truly transforms people’s lives.
Tickets are available here or by calling 0200 7592 1850.
