Bristol Beacon broadcasts free concert for care homes tonight - how to get tickets

By Mark Taylor

Bristol Beacon is broadcasting a free concert with the London Symphony Orchestra to care homes across the country as a thank you to staff and residents following the last 18 months.

The broadcast, which takes place tonight (October 7) from 7.15pm, is being organised thanks to sponsorship from Bristol Care Homes, who are supporting the cost of the stream.

A private link to watch the concert is being sent for free to a national database of 16,000 care homes, and the Care Quality Commission are also promoting the opportunity.

The concert, which sees Sir Simon Rattle lead the orchestra in Martinů’s Rhapsody-Concerto for viola with violist Antoine Tamestit and Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony, is being performed at Bath Forum – the first time the orchestra has performed in Bath since 2008.

The concert has been staged by Bristol Beacon, with funding from the Culture Recovery fund, in anticipation of an ongoing artistic partnership with London Symphony Orchestra when the venue reopens in 2023.

The event comes just days after Bristol Beacon revealed its fresh new look and bold new vision, uniting all elements of the music charity’s work under one name and inviting everyone to ‘Make Space for Music’.

Tickets are available for the show at the Bath Forum at https://bristolbeacon.org/whats-on/london-symphony-orchestra/.
