Orchestra of WNO Hit the Hall

Friday, unless you didn't know (where have you been?), sees the final installment of the Orchestra of WNO’s series of concerts at St David’s Hall this season. Lothar Koenigs conducts a programme made up of Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll, and Bruckner's 7th Symphony. Given the sheer enjoyment of the previous two concerts ticket sales have been surprisingly slow, so it would be nice to Usain Bolt the rhythm of events.

Now that I've encouraged you to come along I may now dissuade some of you. It seems that the front of house customer lift is out of order at the moment, which has led St David's Hall to offer refunds if you rely on using the lift to get into the hall. It's the one great weakness of the building that when it was originally built there should have been more than a single customer lift incorporated into the design, but hindsight is perfect (and usually moany), and I can't remember the last time it went down with an injury.
