The Academy of Ancient Music launches its Association at the Barbican with a celebratory performance of some of Handelís most jubilant music. Written for national and royal celebrations, including a Fireworks display in Green Park and the Coronation of George II, these works course with instantly recognisable and thrilling tunes.

The Barbican performance concludes a major European tour and an appearance as part of the Jubilee Pageant on the River Thames.
