The Queens Platinum Jubilee Celebration

The Queens Platinum Jubilee Celebration (First Night) of the Hever Festival Proms! 

Guildhall Strings 

Sat 4 June 8pm 

Two Sisters’ Theatre 


It’s a real coup for Hever Festival Theatre to be welcoming the Guildhall Strings to the festival for the first time.  

The ensemble has especially chosen the programme to mark The Queen’s Jubilee, we will not be hearing The Pomp and Circumstance March (until the Last Night proms) but it will be packed with British composers including Henry VIII. Flag waving required for the National Anthem! We can’t wait… 

Formed in 1981, the Guildhall Strings was immediately recognised as one of the UK’s leading classical groups. Their almost telepathic performances without conductor were described by The Guardian as ‘an object in ensemble playing’. They broadcast regularly for the BBC and have toured to North and South America, Europe, Africa and the Far East. Their many recordings on major labels span the music of five centuries. 

In recent years the members of the group have pursued their individual careers and they have only performed together on special occasions. This concert of English string music to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee promises to be a very special occasion. 

The programme will include: 

Elgar Serenade for Strings 

Walton 2 pieces from the film music for Henry V  

Holst St Paul’s Suite 

Greensleeves by Henry VIII
