BBC Radio 2 Present War Horse: The Story in Concert on Friday 18th May 2018

On Friday 18th May 2018, in the centenary year marking the end of the First World War, the BBC Concert Orchestra performs ‘War Horse: The Story In Concert’. With guest narrators including Simon Callow, we tell the emotionally-charged story of Joey, the young farm horse who finds himself taken from the calm of the English countryside and thrust into the horrors of the Western Front’s battlefields. This performance features Adrian Sutton’s acclaimed score, composed originally for the National Theatre’s production of Michael Morpurgo’s tale.

Also featuring the Hertfordshire Chorus and singer Tim Van Eyken, this special concert for BBC Radio 2 takes place at Coventry Cathedral and you could be in the audience to see it.

We have 75 pairs of tickets to give away and ticket registration opens at 9am, Tuesday 17th April and will close at 11:55PM on Thursday 10th May.


Doors open at 6.30pm with the performance starting at 7.15pm. Approx. finish time is 9.30pm.

Entrants must be 12 or over. Anyone aged between 12 and 17 attending the event, must be accompanied by a parent or guardian aged 18 or over. Proof of age, identity and eligibility may be requested in the form of a passport, photo card driving license or photo travel card.

Successful applicants will be selected at random once the registration period has closed.

Please note that Joey won’t be joining us at Coventry Cathedral, however this event will feature the incredible musical score performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra.
