A free concert of music with the BBC Singers to kick-start the Advent season in a beautiful venue, Tonbridge School Chapel. Broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, the programme includes choral and organ works from the Renaissance to the present day - from music by Palestrina and Bach, to Herbert Howells, Bob Chilcott, and Nico Muhly.
Admission by free ticket only.
Please note that because tickets are free, not everyone who is issued with tickets uses them and we therefore need to oversubscribe free events which means that tickets do not guarantee entry. We do consider carefully how many extra tickets to issue for each show, but we recommend that you arrive in good time to be sure that you are not disappointed.
