Lieder is considered a rarefied pursuit. Yet when it’s delivered with the disarming openness of the Leicester-raised, Hanover-based baritone James Newby it feels like the most direct form of expression there is…he has a wonderfully mellifluous tone, which he can deploy in a confessional whisper or an anguished cry.

So wrote The Times in their 5* review of Newby and Middleton at last year’s Festival.

James is passionate about building links with new audiences and so for the first time we are collaborating with Through the Noise, a groundbreaking promotor whose mission it is to bring the best classical artists to popular club locations. Like them, we are determined to bring classical music to new and diverse audiences. The bar will stay open until late after this performance and DJs will play rare vinyl records into the night.

Tickets will be available to book via the Through the Noise website.
