Join us for a touching tribute to a true music legend.

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head, What The World Needs Now, Say a Little Prayer, Walk on By, Close to You… Burt Bacharach wrote the kind of tunes that you know without even realising it – the easiest of easy listening. Join the CBSO and an all-star cast as we pay tribute to a legend: the man who put the swing into the Swinging Sixties!

Presented in association with GRB Concerts.
