Inside Out Festival

I have to confess that until I read about the forthcoming recital of Viktor Ullmann song at St. Johns Waterloo I had never heard of  the Inside Out Festival. It is running from 22 to 29 October and this year is the third festival. The aim is to celebrate the contribution of London nine universities to cultural life. There are a wide variety of events, music, talks, exhibitions, workshops etc. Performances take place at the various campuses in and around London.

In addition to the Ullmann recital, there is a performance of Haydn's Creation at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, a harpsichord recital by Jane Chapman entitled The Transforming Power of Music – madness, magic and ecstasy which takes place in the chapel of Kings College on the Strand, jazz at the Guildhall and the Minerva Piano Trio at City University. The website lists ten varied exhibitions happening all over London, talks and much else besides.

Its your chance to see what the Universities are doing and to go inside the places that you usually just walk past.  Many of the events seem to be free, but you have to get tickets in advance. Full details from the Inside Out Festival website.
