On this week’s archive edition, we shift our focus back to 2013 when the venue celebrated composer Benjamin Britten’s centenary.

On the 8–10 November 2013 you may have been in the audience for Illuminating Britten, a celebration of the composer. This weekend was curated by filmmaker and author of ‘Britten’s Children’, John Bridcut – he surrounded the music with a series of talks, discussions, film screenings and even a quiz. Broadcaster Sandy Burnett spoke to John Bridcut for this podcast


From the Archive sees us dig into our extensive contemporary and classical music and cinema podcast archive as we rediscover interviews and discussions with artists, with our long-standing producer and presenter, Ben Eshmade.
