The Space Scratch Symphony
After careful consideration, we have made the decision to move back the Premiere of The Space Scratch Symphony in order to ensure that we have sufficient time to prepare for the performance.
We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and will be in touch very soon to advise of new arrangements and the webpage will be updated with revised information when available.
