This year marks the 70th anniversary of The Hallé's first appearance at the Cheltenham Festival, and we are pleased to be able to share some rarely seen photos from The Hallé's archive of those early years. Meurig Bowen will be charting The Hallé’s history with the Cheltenham Festival in a special presentation in the Drawing Room at Cheltenham Town Hall on July 15 at 5pm. This will be followed by a concert performed by The Hallé at the Town Hall, which features the UK premiere of Ryan Wigglesworth's Clocks from a Winter’s Tale, Mahler's Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No 4.
