Fri 27th | 8pm | James Bond – In Concert!

‘Spectacular’ would be an understatement for this show which features every James Bond movie theme from 1962’s Dr No all the way through to 2015’s Spectre! Each iconic track has been faithfully transcribed and will be performed by a hand-picked 30-piece orchestra, along with guest vocalists, under the baton of celebrated conductor Charles Hazlewood. With a new highly-anticipated Bond movie to be released in 2020 James Bond – In Concert is the perfect time to relive the enduring power of the music that is such an essential part of the Bond franchise. From the first haunting notes of Monty Norman’s original guitar-led big band theme, the music of James Bond has created the soundtrack to all of our lives. Whatever your favourite era of Bond, it’s here in all its large-scale orchestral glory!

Please note if you buy 10 tickets through Colston Hall’s Box Office you will receive 10% off so why not bring down all your friends and party in style, or persuade your boss and bring down the whole office!
