The theme of this concert is light-hearted enjoyment. After a new and specially composed arrangement by Tom Higgins of The Emperor Waltz by JOHANN STRAUSS II comes STANFORD's Serenade in F -- a masterly work combining lyricism with irreverent humour (the 2nd movement variations are based on a cheeky motif from Till Eulenspiegel) and sheer ebullience.
JEAN FRANCAIX's Dixtuor is typically French in its lightness of touch and witty interplay between the instruments, while the evening is rounded off with some of OFFENBACH's most catchy and exhilarating tunes.

How to get there
- By train: The nearest train station is Hampton Wick - 7 minutes walk away. It connects easily with Waterloo, Vauxhall, Clapham Junction, Wimbledon and Richmond. Turn right out the station and then follow directions below as if driving from Kingston. Langdon Park is off Kingston Road, opposite Wick Road. We are in the big building on the right once you have turned into Langdon Park.
- By bus: The 281 stops outside the building, travelling from Tolworth and Kingston in one direction, and Teddington and Twickenham in the other. The 285, which links Kingston and Heathrow airport, also stops outside.
- By car: If you're driving from Kingston, drive past Hampton Wick station on the right and then take the first right after Normansfield Avenue. This isn't named on the map but is called "Langdon Park". Turn immediately right again and park in one of the spaces marked "L.D.C. Reserved Parking". Walk down the gravel path (edged with red brick) and you will come to a big red door on the left, which is the main entrance into the building. If you are approaching from the Twickenham/Richmond direction then take your first left after Holmesdale Road into Langdon Park and then carry on as above.
