This is a unique charity event, featuring an imaginative selection of Italian, Spanish and South American music, played by world-class musicians who are giving their time for a very important cause. We welcome the brilliant young guitar duo of Tom Ellis and Laura Snowden, violinist Oscar Perks and cellist John Heley, alongside the wonderful John Williams, Richard Harvey, Graham Preskett, Susie Gillis and Brian Gulland.

This concert is organised by the Mae Foundation (Music alters everything), which concentrates on taking musical instruments and music teaching to thousands of refugee children from Burma in the jungle refugee camps along the Thai border.

Since 2010, the charity -- founded and supported by British-based composers and musicians -- has already delivered nearly two thousand instruments and songbooks to children in the Mae La camp. The aim of this concert is to finance a second Mae Foundation songbook, to buy more instruments and to guarantee the rapid expansion of our provision of music teachers for these bright, enthusiastic children.

Despite the changes now taking place in Burma, the children in these camps -- more than 60,000 of them -- will still be living in temporary, leaf-roofed huts in the jungle for years to come. Support the Mae Foundation and enjoy a superb evening of exciting music, played by an extraordinary line-up of virtuoso musicians.

Doors open at 7pm. Programme subject to change
