Events

​Grand Union's priority is live performance, and since 1982 we have toured regularly - and continue to tour - throughout the whole of the UK and to many parts of the world.

Following a very busy and successful spring programme - including Mil e Uma Mares in Portugal, our highly original take on the BBC Ten Pieces in Cambridge, shows in Harlow and Clacton and culminating in a ground-breaking two weeks of The Isle is Full of Noises in London - Grand Union is now taking a break from public performances. Meanwhile, we are concentrating on education and participatory activities, the Youth Orchestra and especially our second annual residential Summer School.

However, there are still two performances left in the current  Bengal to Bethnal Green series at Rich Mix, featuring Grand Union musicians in collaboration with local Bengali artists...

                                           Grand Union in Bangladesh

Grand Union often visits Bangladesh, to perform with musicians of the calibre of Shahadat Hossein Khan. Here is a link to a short documentary of one of those visits, when we met and played with him and other distinguished Bengali artists.
