    For those of you not at the Hackney Weekender, or watching the footie, there are other options… I’d recommend this! A violin quintet & harp bring to life this amazing documentary from 100 years ago, detailing the last expedition of Captain Scott as he made his way to the Antarctic. It’s going to be a stunning experience with an original score by Royal College of Music composer Will Temlett written especially for the night, films highlighting the plight faced by the arctic now & a reading of Captain Scott’s moving final letter to his wife. Football’s on every weekend but this is a true one off; Don’t miss it!

    This is on tonight, I’m here at the rehearsal and I can promise you it’s going to be one you don’t want to miss, accompanied by an original score featuring a harp, 2 violins, a cello & clarinet, and one amazing pioneering adventure to the South pole!
