A week-long festival of first-class classical music, food and wine taking place around St Cecilia's Day (22 November) in one of London's finest old City livery halls, this year celebrating music from Central and Eastern Europe.


Hear world renowned classical artists from the Czech Republic, Russia, Kazakhstan, Hungary and the Ukraine performing music by Brahms, Dvorak, Janacek, Turnovsky, Palestrina and even folk music from the Carpathian Mountains.

Evenings begin in the ancient oak-panelled Stock Room of Stationers' Hall with a canapé reception. Every concert includes a champagne interval and festival-goers have the opportunity to complete the entertainment in style with an optional black-tie banquet afterwards.
