About This Event

We celebrate the rich musical landscape of nature in a Prom inspired by the bestselling book The Lost Words, which revives disappearing words that describe the natural world.

With a brand-new ‘spell’ by the book’s author Robert Macfarlane, and live paintings from Jackie Morris, who created the original artwork, the programme includes the nightingale, quail and cuckoo calls from Beethoven’s ‘Pastoral’ Symphony, the Arctic bird cries of Rautavaara’s Cantus arcticus and the carefree flight of Vaughan Williams’s The Lark Ascending.

A unique event for all the family.

There will be one interval

Approx. end time: 19:30
