Fri 18 Sep 2015

OAE Duckie

Orchestras like to have a home base. And they preferably like it to be pretty prestigious. Even glitzy. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (OAE) is no exception.

Tweet for us?

Fri 7 Aug 2015


Are you on Twitter? Instagram? We need you.

We’re not particularly interested in your ‘influence’, we don’t really care about your follower count and we certainly don’t give a shit about your Klout score.

Keeping it Vague: feelin’ stuff

It feels like its been a long week. What with a gig at Southbank Centre on Tuesday, fantastic sunshine earlier in the week, crappy day-long drizzle yesterday and the usual struggles with bank balances / work / maintaining an active social life, it’s seemed like so much more than just 5 days.
