About This Event

As part of the BBC’s Go Green initiative, Radio 2 presents a musical celebration of ‘Our World’ in this unique event at Great Yarmouth’s Hippodrome Circus, with the BBC Concert Orchestra and Orchestras Live.

Conducted by Stephen Bell with special guests, Mercury Prize nominated folk musician Sam Lee, and singer Georgia Cécile who has been widely acclaimed as one of the most exciting talents to emerge from the world of jazz in recent years.

Expect a diverse range of sounds and styles, from the Moths and Butterflies as depicted by Edward Elgar in his Wand Of Youth Suite, Eric Coates’ Sleepy Lagoon, known to millions as the Desert Island Discs theme since the programme launched in 1942, to Nitin Sawhney’s dramatic modern day score for the BBC’s ground-breaking natural history TV series, ‘Human Planet’, and not forgetting Percy Grainger’s celebrated musical portrait of the English Country Garden.

This concert is part of Create Yarmouth – a three year partnership with the BBC Concert Orchestra and Orchestras Live.
