Performances at 2pm and 4pm.

Presented and narrated by Zeb Soanes

Conductor: Leo Geyer

Featuring Gaspard the Fox and Baba the Elephant (Poulenc)

Come and hear Gaspard the Fox and Baba the Elephant brought to life by Wimbledon Symphony Orchestra with narrator and author Zeb Soanes and award-winning composer and conductor Leo Geyer.

Zeb Soanes is a familiar voice to millions. He is a newsreader on BBC Radio 4's Today Programme, Six O'Clock News and The News Quiz and puts the nation to bed with The Shipping Forecast. On television he has presented The BBC Proms and he performs with orchestras around the UK. Gaspard the Fox is his first book in a new series for children based on the real urban fox that visits his home in London. It is a warm-hearted tale of friendship, kindness and being accepted for who you are. 

Zeb will be signing copies of his book Gaspard the Fox after each WSO Family Concert on Saturday 13 October.

The concert will last approximately one hour and there will be no interval. We strongly recommend prebooking as previously our family concerts have been sell outs!

There will be two performances: The first at 2.00pm and the second at 4.00pm.
