With its stained glass windows, intricately painted ceilings and columned central throughway, The Mount Without is an enchanting spot for a Candlelight concert. The church turned entertainment venue has been a gathering place for hundreds of years; the tower dates back to the mid 15th century, while the Grade II building underwent a complete renovation in 2016 to become the space we know and love today. Over the next few months, The Mount Without will host a series of Candlelight concerts, where classical musicians or jazz bands will perform renditions of well-known tunes, all under the soft glow of candlelight. Will your favourite song be making an appearance on the setlist? Read on to find out…
From pop to country, you may think you’ve heard all of Taylor Swift’s music styles, but we bet you’ve not heard her like this. Taylor’s biggest hits will get the Candlelight treatment on July 22 – our Wildest Dreams have come true. As you listen to the talented string quartet play the recognisable tunes at this centuries-old venue, you’ll be able to reminisce on an impressive backlog of music. The setlist will include Blank Space, Cardigan, and We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, amongst others. Book your tickets here.
The Rumours are true: a Candlelight tribute to rock band Fleetwood Mac is coming to Bristol. On July 15, August 4 and August 18, the rock band’s iconic tunes will be given a classical twist, as they are performed by a pianist and violinist duo. Expect to hear Gypsy, Dreams and Gold Dust Women – to name just a few – in a brand-new way. There will be two, 60-minute performances on each evening, one at 7pm and another at 9pm – some might say, you can Go Your Own Way when it comes to picking the time that suits you best. Tickets are available here.
