The event will be held in Plaza Centre, Southchurch Road, Southend-on-Sea, SS1 2PT, and is £10.00 per person or £8 for members to attend.

Red Priest is the only early music group in the world to have been compared in the press to the Rolling Stones, Jackson Pollock, the Marx Brothers, Spike Jones and the Cirque du Soleil.

This extraordinary acoustic foursome has been described by music critics as “visionary and heretical,” “outrageous yet compulsive,” “wholly irreverent and highly enlightened,” “completely wild and deeply imaginative,” with a “red-hot wicked sense of humour”. Red Priest has given several hundred sell-out concerts in many of the world’s most prestigious festivals, including the Hong Kong Arts Festival, Moscow December Nights Festival, Schwetzingen Festival, Prague Spring Festival, Ravinia Festival, Bermuda Festival, and in most European countries, Japan, Australia, and throughout North and Central America.

Performance programme includes:
Baroque Bohemians Gypsy Sonata Telemann
Sonata No 1 Biber
La Bohemienne Campra
Gypsies Round Byrd and works by Handel and Vivaldi

The Plaza Centre offers a splendid concert atmosphere, and is popular with performers and audience alike. Refreshments are available and there’s also ample parking. There is accommodation and access for visitors with disabilities.
