A message to ticket holders – 7 May 2020

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and have managed to settle into this strange new life…

Given where we currently are with the lockdown it looks like life will not be back to any kind of normal for quite some time – certainly not in time for the next two events of our Beethoven Journey, Thus Fate Knocks at the Door on 11-13 June and Painting with Music on 16-18 July. So unfortunately we have, with regret, decided to cancel them. 

We will be issuing refunds to anyone who has bought tickets to these two events (including partial refunds to bundle ticket holders) from Wednesday 13 May. If you would prefer to donate the cost of your tickets to support the organisation, please let us know before then.

Although this year is not turning out the way we planned, we are working behind the scenes on an exciting plan to relaunch our activities further down the line and are looking forward to sharing our passion for this wonderful music and history with you post lockdown!

In the meantime, here is a bit of feisty Beethoven to lift your spirits, his 7th Symphony, capturing the Viennese’s obsession with dancing.

Keep well.

Nicholas Little


Founder and Artistic Director

Painting with Music (Cancelled)

16 - 18 July 2020, Battersea Arts Centre

Event cancelled due to ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Immortal Beloved

17 - 19 September 2020, Alexandra Palace

As Beethoven’s mastery of music goes from strength to strength, his search for love becomes increasingly futile.

The Dance of Decadence Ball

23 & 24 October 2020, Royal Horticultural Halls

With the defeat of Napoleon, Beethoven’s Vienna is transformed into a whirlwind of balls, banquets and entertainment as the powers of Europe negotiate the future of Europe. During this historical moment Beethoven’s fame and success reach their zenith.

Down but not Out

13 & 14 November 2020, Battersea Arts Centre

After 8 years of white hot creativity, Beethoven’s creative output slows considerably as his struggles with love, money and his health take their toll.

Ode to Joy

11 & 12 December 2020, Royal Horticultural Halls

Beethoven’s final symphony is one of the crowning achievements of his remarkable life and the full expression of the spiritual values he grew up with and carried with him throughout his life.

Yet again you guys nailed it. You demystify classical music for the common man. That is an art in itself.
