To close The Art of Flight season at St George’s, this massed brass band and choir extravaganza, traces aspects of Bristol’s aeronautical history through reminiscences and memories drawn from past and present workers in the industry.

One of the West Country’s premier brass bands joins forces with training bands from around the region alongside several hundred voices to create a journey through flight, including the iconic Concorde, in Liz Lane’s newly commissioned work, Innovation 216.
