Music at the Castle

The people who normally put concerts on in Booth Books are having a change of venue at the beginning of next month - on 1st July Flourish Wind Quintet are performing at Hay Castle to raise more money for the restoration of the castle.
Just recently the Castle Trust learned they had been successful in applying for a grant of just over £500,000 - in fact, the announcement was made during Hay Festival - but of course they need more. For £20, you get the Quintet and a light supper, and there will be a bar. Suppers start at 6.30pm and the music begins at 8pm. The players are all from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and they'll be playing music by composers I'm unfamiliar with - Hindemith and Neilson, and Milhaut and Francaix.
