Did you know, the average person in the UK spends five hours per week doing the laundry? That’s a lot of sorting, ironing, drying and folding – a lot of time that could be spent having fun or relaxing instead!
Each week we highlight the best things to do in London, Birmingham and Edinburgh with the time you can save when you use Laundrapp to do your laundry and dry cleaning for you. This week, we’ve got a selection of classical music events to bring an extra dash of culture to your weekend.
Has the election got you feeling political? You’ll be pleased to know the London Sinfonetta have whipped up a concert performance to celebrate the election. Taking place at the Southbank Centre on Saturday, 9th May, the Notes to a New Government concert will include tributes to the past from 16 different composers. Best of all, at just £10 a ticket it’s a fantastic and affordable way to spend the evening.
If the General Election has just got weary of everything political, on the other hand, then now may be the perfect time to take in some classical Mozart. Conductor Andris Nelsons and Violinist Baiba Skride will be performing Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 4 in D Major on Friday, 8th May. If you’re not familiar with all the intricacies of the classics then the short version is that you’re in for a treat at Warwick Arts Centre, courtesy of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
If you’re less of a classical music fan and more of a traditional music nut, you’ll likely already know about Tradfest – Edinburgh’s traditional arts festival. Based predominantly out of the Scottish Storytelling Centre but with events all over the city, Tradfest offers everything from contemporary interpretations to faithfully ceilidhs, as well as the award-winning folk singer Bella Hardy. Ticket prices vary, but we’re confident it will be worth the investment!
