We are delighted to open the Autumn ‘Silent Film and Live Music’ Series with the UK premiere of the live score performance of London Symphony, a brand new city symphony which offers a poetic journey through London.

Directed by Alex Barrett and nominated for the Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature Film at Edinburgh International Film Festival, it is an artistic snapshot of the city as it stands today, and a celebration of its culture and diversity.

Presented with the live premiere of James McWilliam's accompanying composition, performed by the Covent Garden Sinfonia, conducted by Ben Palmer, and followed by a discussion featuring the filmmakers and London history specialist Mark Rowland, chair of Footprints of London.
