work he draws on musical references including Elgar, Delius and several well known hymns. Alex Jennings will present the role of Alan Bennett in this performance, following on from his recent appearance in Alan Bennett's play The Habit of Art at the National Theatre, where he played Benjamin Britten. The evening is completed with a performance of Ravel's String Quartet, followed by a Q&A."

The music will be performed by the Medici Quartet.
