The first in a new series of concerts takes place this weekend, with an award-winning young musician set to play.

The first concert takes place on Saturday, October 25, by the remarkable percussionist Delia Stevens - a recent RNCM Gold Medal Winner and previous finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Future Competition.

Future concerts include Tom McKinney (classical guitar), Nut Club (new jazz) and Brendan Ball (trumpet).
