Butcher’s Hall, a stone’s throw away from St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Museum of London and Smithfield Market is hosting a series of candlelight concerts that are sure to take you on a fantastical journey of music. With intimate performances of the works of Harry Styles, Queen, and a medley of music from some of your favourite films from your childhood (and adulthood, let’s be honest), you won’t want to miss out on these spectacles by candlelight.
You can Be Our Guest on June 25 and get yourself entranced in a nostalgia-inducing performance celebrating Magical Movie Soundtracks from a whole host of your favourite films. Harry Potter, Star Wars, Lion King, Mary Poppins, and more are all coming together in one night in a way you’ve never experienced before. So book your tickets, relax and let a talented string quartet seamlessly whisk you between the enchanting realms of a variety of films – it’s our problem-free philosophy, Hakuna Matata! Tickets are available here.
Nothing will be the same As It Was after witnessing Harry Styles’ much-loved music receive the candlelight treatment. On July 30, the sound of vibrant songs such as Watermelon Sugar, Adore You and Story Of My Life will be spilling from the windows of Butcher’s Hall, as a string quartet puts their sonorous spin on the chart-topping hits. Fans of the singer-songwriter will be entirely in their element humming along.
Last but by no means least for Butcher’s Hall is a night that will have you wanting to jump up on stage and belt your heart out. So don’t worry if you’re feeling a little Under Pressure at the moment because We Will Rock You…well, the incredibly talented ensemble of musicians will as they take you through some of Queen’s timeless hits. Expect the songs you know but with a good touch of classical mixed in for good measure at this candlelight tribute to the legendary Queen on June 26. You can get your tickets for this one here.
Each show lasts an hour, and on each night, there will be an early and late performance. So whether you want to kick your night off or end it with a candlelight performance, you’re covered. You won’t regret the choice of heading down to a candlelight show this summer and will see that even the classics can have new life breathed into them with some slight tweaks. This taking place in Butcher’s Hall is even more fitting. Despite its updated look and facilities, it has a history dating back to 975AD, with the location having moved several times over those years and most recently being refurbished in 2019. With all this culture and history coming together, these candlelight concerts promise a magical evening to remember.
