Come and enjoy some of the best-loved and spookiest musical treats in an extravaganza of music, painting, and stories for families, with children’s author-illustrator James Mayhew, Antonio Reche-Martinez, and Saffron Walden Symphony Orchestra.
The programme includes Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Saint-Saens’ Danse Macabre, Humperdinck’s Witch’s Ride, Wagner’s Flying Dutchman and more.
James tells the stories and then he and Antonio paint live on stage, capturing the spine-chilling scenes, while the Orchestra plays.
Their paintings will be raffled at the end of the Concert, and all profits go to Refugease, a charity supporting refugees all around the world.
Our free minibus service between Audley End Station and Saffron Hall will not be in operation for this event.
This event is not recommended for children under 4 years old
