Join BBC Radio 3 at the Belfast International Arts Festival for a series of Invitation Concerts at St Mark’s Church, Dundela.

We’ll be joined by the acclaimed ensemble, Albion Quartet and leading chamber musician, Charles Owen.

The Albion Quartet, which was formed in 2016, has performed at venues across Europe and its players will soon be making their US debut.

Charles Owen is Professor of Piano at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London, and is a passionate chamber music collaborator.

We know that these recitals will be popular with local audiences. Tickets will be restricted to two per applicant for each performance and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Tickets are strictly non-transferable. Photographic proof of ID must be shown. If you cannot provide this proof you will be refused entry. If your photo ID does not match the name on the ticket you will not be admitted. If you request two tickets because you are taking a guest along, that person will only be allowed in if they are accompanied by you.

Please take a look at our FAQ to see what type of photo ID is acceptable.

Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that as not everyone who asks for tickets uses them, to make sure we have a full house we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people so please arrive early.
