Blackburn Classics

As we step ever closer to the 100th anniversary of King George’s Hall in 2022, we are increasingly aware of the role the building has to play within the Borough. You’ll have noticed the work progressing with the Blakey Moor Townscape Heritage Project over the last few months.  King George’s Hall is central to the cultural regeneration of the town and Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council are committed to ensuring that  Blackburn town centre is an attractive, safe and vibrant place to visit.

I am all too mindful that orchestral concerts within Lancashire are dwindling in number and we can take pride in our wonderful relationship with The Hallé who continue to support us in delivering this series.  From a 250th celebration of Beethoven, to an afternoon of British Film Music, there’s a huge variety of repertoire on offer and something for everyone to enjoy.

We’ve still much work to do to ensure the development of audiences for the future but may I take this opportunity to thank you for your support and I do hope you’ll be joining us again for the 2019/20 season.
