Christmas programme: Sound the Sackbut! What on earth is a sackbut? Well, we’d rather show you than tell you… but here’s a hint: it’s a bit like a trombone! We’re really excited to bring you both instruments for a special festive concert including music for sackbut from the 1600s and Rimsky-Korsakov’s glittering Trombone Concerto. All that, plus your favourite singalong Christmas carols to finish, of course!

Doors open 30 mins prior to the concert, giving you time to ditch the buggy, grab a Monmouth coffee and catch up with friends before the performance.
