Polish Folklore Spectacular
A vibrant celebration of Polish dance, song and music presented by over 400 performers from across the UK and Ireland. The Federation of Polish Folklore Groups in Great Britain is proud to present the 10th Festival of Polish Folklore on the 25th anniversary of the first Festival held in the UK in Leamington Spa in 1993. You will be entertained by 15 song and dance ensembles from across the UK, including one ensemble from Ireland and a choir made up of singers from across the UK. They will be showcasing the broad range of national and regional folk songs and dances in the respective traditional costumes.

The ensembles and performers are all amateurs who regularly perform at a variety of functions, including for royalty and some have even been on national television. The ensembles are made up of performers who are first, second or third generation Poles and there are even a few performers with no Polish heritage. What unites all the performers and ensembles is a common love for Poland’s rich and colourful culture and they cannot wait to share it with audiences at De Montfort Hall.

Jurassic Park in Concert

One of the most thrilling science fiction adventures ever made, and featuring one of John Williams’ most iconic and beloved musical scores, Jurassic Park transformed the movie-going experience for an entire generation and became the highest-grossing film of all time in 1993, winning three Academy Awards. Masterfully directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the best-selling novel by Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park transports us to a secluded island where scientists have succeeded in reviving the age of dinosaurs in a brand new, immersive theme park, the likes of which has never been seen before.

Renowned paleontologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) are part of an exclusive group invited to the island for a sneak preview of the park’s wonders. When things go terribly wrong, they must fight for their lives against unimaginable dangers in a desperate attempt to escape from a world gone mad… a world in which dinosaurs once again rule the earth.

Now audiences can experience this ground-breaking film as never before: projected in HD with a full symphony orchestra performing Williams’ magnificent score live to picture. Welcome… to Jurassic Park!

Accompanied by the Czech national symphony orchestra.
Music composed by John Williams. Conducted by Ben Palmer.
