The opening of the Royal Festival Hall will be celebrated with 48 hours of free music, the 'Overture Weekend', starting at dusk on Friday 8 June and continuing until dusk on Sunday 10 June.
Every part of the site will become a platform for music and performance, from The Ballroom to the rafters of the Royal Festival Hall and spilling out into the open air onto the splendid riverside terraces. Choirs, both amateur and professional, from all over the country will participate with world-class artists in the celebrations.
