The theme for next week's event is ‘Cold History Case - the Mystery of Beethoven's Deafness.' A lock of Beethoven's hair was bought at an auction in 1994 and subsequent forensic tests were able to pinpoint the reasons for Beethoven's sickness and deafness.  The results of these tests were astounding. The mystery will be unravelled through a musical odyssey of his most beloved works.  

The Con Friends bar will be open from 5.30pm for a refreshing drink before the concert.
