City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra announces return to Hockley Social Club for a night of music and poetry


The CBSO returns to Hockley Social Club for a third time on Thursday 5 May, presenting its ‘Symphonic Sessions’, an evening of music and poetry exploring fantasy and escapism. 

CBSO musicians will entertain audiences with an adventurous set-list complemented by melodic mixes from acclaimed DJ Echo Juliet, while Birmingham’s brilliant poet laureate Casey Bailey will interweave his poetry amongst the music.

The CBSO’s popular ‘Symphonic Sessions’ are part of the orchestra’s commitment to reaching wider, younger and more diverse audiences beyond the concert hall, in different communities across the city. The first two ‘Symphonic Sessions’ in 2021 sold out and two further sessions will be announced as part of the orchestra’s 2022/23 season launch.

Hockley’s street food superstars Buddha Belly, Kodawari, Andy Low’n’Slow and Confection will be on hand to provide a range of food to cater for all tastes alongside drinks from the bar.

More information and tickets are available on the event page.
