The London Philharmonic Orchestra is playing an intimate one-hour set in a shopping centre.

The orchestra, which is more used to performing in the likes of London’s Royal Albert Hall, will play for one hour in Langney Shopping Centre, Eastbourne, this Saturday.

The set will be between 2pm to 3pm and anyone is welcome to watch.

Paul Beniston, principal trumpet of the London Philharmonic Orchestra said: “We love performing for our Eastbourne audience at the Congress Theatre so we’re really happy to be able to play some festive tunes for the community.

"It will be great to be in a more informal setting and closer to the audience rather than on the stage.”

The orchestra is also playing at the Congress Theatre in Eastbourne on January 14 with a performance called “Elgar’s Cello Concerto”.

It was founded in 1932 by conductors Sir Thomas Beecham and Malcolm Sargent to rival the existing London Symphony and BBC Symphony Orchestras.
