ROYAL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA AT CADOGAN HALL
Wednesday 20 July
The RPO will be showcasing a programme of Wagner, Brahms and Franck on Wednesday. The Prelude to Act 1 of Lohengrin is an exquisite example of Wagner’s shimmering, spine-tingling orchestration and slowly unfolding harmonies, reaching heights of sublime beauty. Brahms’s Violin Concerto is another treat, with a particularly delectable slow movement. Belgian composer Franck combined French ‘cyclic’ form, in which certain phrases recur throughout, with a more Germanic style – like Wagner, Franck revelled in lush orchestral sounds. Tickets start from £12.50 and are available here
CHINAWHITE AT THE CARTIER INTERNATIONAL POLO

The Cartier International Polo is considered by many to be the highlight of the British social season and the pinnacle of the polo calendar. This year's event is set to be no exception with an incredible DJ set from Mark Ronson, as well as what is set to be an explosive DJ performance from Swedish House Mafia’s Axwell – the king of the sun-kissed summer anthem and a giant in modern day dance music!
