SIMON Thacker will give a classical guitar concert in St Andrew’s Church, Witham-on-the-Hill on Thursday at 7.30pm.

Simon’s emotionally charged interpretations have established him as one of Britain’s most exciting classical performers.

As well as giving solo recitals, Simon collaborates with jazz musicians and is a member of a quartet with three leading Indian musicians.

His globe-trotting programme will take the audience on a journey to Spain, South America and Cuba with music by Brouwer, Ponce, Torroba and back to the UK with Britten’s masterpiece, Nocturnal.

Tickets are £12 (£11 for Artscene members and concessions) and are available from Stamford Arts Centre on 01780 763203.
