    Saturday December 16, 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm

    Harrow School Speech Room

    Harrow Choral Society is preparing for its popular Christmas Celebration in the Speech Room of Harrow School on Saturday 16th December. “Our Christmas Celebration is always a special occasion and it will be exciting to perform in the Speech Room after its recent refurbishment,” said HCS Chair, Margaret Davies. ”

    The combination of the historic setting, Christmas music and readings by Tim Bentinck makes a wonderful start to the festive season.”

    The varied programme will feature new and traditional music including Vaughan Williams’s Fantasia on Christmas Carols and Michael Higgins’s Still, Still, Still along with well-known carols and opportunities for audience participation! There will also be performances from Byron Brass and seasonal readings by actor Timothy Bentinck whom the choir is delighted to welcome back this year as its celebrity guest. As an Old Harrovian Timothy Bentinck will be familiar with the concert venue. Best known for his long-running role as David Archer in the BBC Radio 4 series, The Archers, Tim has appeared in many TV and film productions including Gentleman Jack, The Thick of It and Silent Witness. He has also frequently performed on the West End stage. Tim was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2018 for services to drama.

    The 90-strong choir will be conducted by Music Director Sam Evans and accompanied on the organ by composer and arranger, Paul Ayres.
    The concert starts at 5.30 pm and tickets, which are £22, and £2 for under-18s, can be obtained via the choir website at or at

  • Proscenium Theatre Group presents: Julius Caesar by Shakespeare

    Wednesday March 13, 7:45 pm to Saturday March 16, 9:30 pm

    harrow arts centre

    Political leaders overreaching themselves, believing they are infallible. Losing touch with the people who elected them, the real world and who they are. Difficult questions and situations. How far would you go? All it takes for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing. The story of Julius Caesar is as relevant today as when Shakespeare wrote it in 1599. Proscenium presents this classic play in a version for our times.

    This production is part of Proscenium’s Centenary Season, celebrating 100 years of the company – and is in fact their 350th production! For it, they return to Harrow Arts Centre, where they performed between 1990 and 2005.
