Whether you are a professor of music or couldn’t tell a string quartet from a string vest, this mini orchestra of madcap virtuosos is a guaranteed laugh every four bars. From the William Tell Overture to Land of Hope and Glory, nothing is safe in this hilarious musical night out.  Hosted by Radio 4 star Rainer Hersch (“The World’s First Classical Music Hooligan” The Sun) these demented musicians have been a hit at the Edinburgh Festival and theatres across Europe. The perfect cocktail of comedy and classical music, Rainer Hersch’s Classic Comedy Orchestra will send you home with a spring in your step and a smile on your face.

“This is more than just a feel-good show – it had me guffawing with genuine pleasure…A palpable hit.”
The Stage

“You’ll never see another show quite like this”
