Gaz Coombes will play a charity concert on Sunday 19 May at the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford marking the 350th anniversary of Christopher Wren’s iconic building. The Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello nominated artist will perform a bespoke set with orchestral accompaniment arranged and conducted by composer Luke Lewis. All proceeds from the concert will be donated to two local charities; Yellow Submarine, who support people with learning difficulties and the Young Women’s Music Project (YWMP), with Suzy Bowtell of YWMP opening the show. The concert is supported by the University’s Faculty of Music and TORCH.
Tickets are available here. Exclusive meet and greet packages are available at £50 and include an invitation to the late-night after-party.
