This September the University will launch its new Music degree and, in preparation, is introducing new musical events and opportunities onto its Newcastle campus over the coming months.

Members of the public are invited to come along to enjoy the concert in a relaxed and informal setting. Visitors are free to come and go, bring their own lunch and even read a book or text their friends while enjoying baroque music.

Professor Smith said: “This is a great way for people to discover more about classical music in a very informal setting and perfect for anyone looking to do something a little bit different during their lunch break.”
