The Little Orchestra

The Little Orchestra


They often come with a lot of strings attached.

Or, they did until the arrival of The Little Orchestra, who have done us all a favour and abandoned the usual suits and airs of superiority that classical concerts used to carry around with them, in favour of a much more fun, relaxed, and social atmosphere.

This month, they’re putting on a show they’re calling Twilight Transitions. Here’s how your evening will go down:


You’ll arrive at Bethnal Green’s Oval Space to find it completely transformed for Twilight Transitions, with atmospheric lighting, and a terrace laden with drinks and snacks. As the concert is about to start, you’ll reach…


You’ll take your seat (or sofa), and be surprised to find the very talented musicians settling into their seats a few feet away from you. There’s no stage. No velvet curtain. Just an intimate, low-lit, acoustically fine-tuned space, where you’ll get to listen to some heavenly music. That music will involve two gorgeously dramatic pieces; Beethoven’s 4th Symphony and Shostakovich’s 2nd Piano Concerto. Then there’s…


After the hypothetical curtain comes down, the bar reopens, and the musicians all head there for a drink to unwind with the guests, while a little live jazz plays in the background. And we haven’t even got to the best part – tickets start at just £20, leaving the only strings left attached…

Your purse strings.

NOTE: The Little Orchestra’s Twilight Transitions take place on the 22nd & 23rd of September at Oval Space. Tickets cost £20-£35, and are available HERE.

OTHER NOTE: We’ve arranged an exclusive Experience for the Twilight Transitions, just for Nudge Members. Find out more HERE
