Event Description

The candle-lit setting was truly majestic to look at especially in the Church. The atmosphere was great and would be an amazing place to take your loved ones with an experience they will never forget.

The performance was just over an hour and is a memory I will forever cherish. The candlelight setting lets you relax and be present in the moment, as you lose yourself in the otherworldly music of Joe Hisaishi! 

Whilst listening to the instruments playing away. I had a beautiful view inside the church and got a chance to see the candlelight setting too. My partner even loved this event and thought the music was played in such a beautiful way.

The performance was truly mesmerising and brought a tear to my eye. Attending a fabulous candlelight concert is made for everyone!
