Gulbenkian closed to the public - Tue 26 Jul to Mon 8 Aug

All our spaces including the Cafe are closed for a conference event between 26 July and 8 Aug inclusive.

East Bridge Chorale is delighted to return to the Colyer-Fergusson Hall to perform their autumn concert.

Directed by Benedict Preece, with full orchestral accompaniment by East Bridge Concert Orchestra and featuring soloists by members of Caritas Chamber Choir, this year’s headline piece will be Haydn’s glorious Nelson Mass – or Missa in angustiis (‘Mass for troubled times’). Emotionally intense and highly dramatic, this late-life masterpiece is one of Haydn’s best-loved works.

The choir will also sing Haydn’s smaller scale, yet similarly complex choral work, the Te Deum, as well as Schubert’s Magnificat D486 and the exquisite and universally popular Ave Verum Corpus, by Mozart. Completing the programme will be Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate for solo soprano and orchestra.

Formed in 2010, East Bridge Chorale has evolved under Benedict Preece’s inspirational direction to become one of Kent’s leading community choirs.

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
