The Carnival of the Animals Concert with Michael Morpurgo

Inspired by Camille Saint-Saëns ‘The Carnival of the Animals’, Michael Morpurgo has penned accompanying poems on each animal of the humorous musical suite. As he reads the poems, he will be accompanied by cellist Clare O’Connell, who will perform the pieces by Saint-Saëns and many other composers.

Gardens open at 5:30pm, performance begins at 7pm
