We're  delighted to return to St Mary's in Thatcham as part of the Thatcham Festival.  And we are very excited to welcome Victoria Benjamin who will play the virtuoso solo in Iturralde's Pequeña Czarda (you may remember her wonderful performance of Riverdance a few years ago which went down a storm). Scroll down to find out more about Victoria.
