Which reminds me: it’s high time to revive my New Music on a Shoestring series.
Here are the rules:
1. New Music only: post-1945 composed music for attentive listening.
2. There must be tickets must be available to all (sorry, concessions don’t count, although some of the concerts listed will have still cheaper seats for students etc.) for £6 or less; the range of seats can go higher than this, but there must be a lowest price of £6 or less.
3. I’m dealing with the UK only – sorry world.
I don’t claim to be comprehensive: if you have an event that you’d like me to mention and that meets these three rules, drop me a line.
So, on to this month’s listings:
