Music through the ages

Half a millennium of music will be brought to life in a 90-minute show.

A Brief History of Music sees two performers play over 30 instruments and fit in numerous costume changes to deliver 600 years of music.

Historical music performers Blast from the Past will play long-forgotten tunes and old favourites such as the raucous mix of stately medieval music with flowery Victoriana. Add to that the wit of Blackadder and 1066 and All That and the stage is set for a night of great humour. Catch the show at the Florence Nightingale Memorial Hall, Holloway, on May 7, at 7.30pm.
