Friday brings two intimate and interactive shows for early years children and their families at St George’s Hall at both 11.45am and 1.30pm.

Set within a campsite and inspired by life within the womb, this immersive show is performed in and outside of a tent.

Deal Castle will be host to Bach to the Future when two of DMA Education Projects will work together to create a chain of music and movement through its mysterious spaces and chambers. The music of Bach in orchestration by Joe Parks is juxtaposed against Lutoslawski’s dynamic Chian Dancers from Goodwin Academy. Performances and free and are at 2.15 and 3.30pm (entry to the Castle for this event will be free).

On Saturday, the ORA Singers will be at St Mary’s Art Centre in Sandwich.

The programme is inspired by Rome’s rich catalogue of Renaissance composers. ORA Singers continues the centuries-long living tradition of choral singing in Britain, which dates back centuries. The group is recognised for its modern approach and is one of the world’s foremost commissioners of contemporary choral music, which it performs alongside Renaissance masterpieces in its celebrated concerts and recordings.

Directed by Suzi Digby OBE, the group has been named Ensemble of the Year at the 2018 Opus Klassik awards.
