Genre-crossing composer and producer Anna Meredith teams up with the London Contemporary Orchestra to present a live orchestral performance of Mercury Prize-shortlisted album, FIBS.

Bringing together the worlds of classical, electronic and pop, Anna Meredith is one of the most innovative voices in UK music. Renowned for her exhilarating and ecstatic live shows, along with her band she creates high energy synths, brass, and pounding rhythms, sprinkled with moments of beauty and poise.

For this unique show, Meredith and band will be joined on stage by a 55 strong London Contemporary Orchestra, conducted by Robert Ames.

Electronic-pop composer Carmel Smickersgill and British-Rwandan music and sound artist Auclair each perform an opening set. 

Plus, get here early or stay late to enjoy a Roller Disco session with music curated by Anna Meredith, including a Max Tundra DJ set - more details below.
