Spanish season at The Horton

There is a lot going on at The Horton over the summer; just a flavour for you below......

The Horton Epsom is delighted to announce a season of Spanish work, taking place at the new arts centre this July.

A series of classical music and dance concerts pay tribute to the tragic Spanish dance prodigy Felix Garcia, who was secretly banished to Horton Asylum in 1919, following a clash with the Russian Ballet.

The concerts will be performed by celebrated artists from Spain on an international tour, with The Horton Epsom hosting the only UK dates.

The programme for two concerts Spanish Serenade and Spanish Symphony includes music by Albéniz, Giménez, Bizet and de Falla and other European composers inspired by Spain such as Ravel, performed on piano, violin and voice. Award-winning dancers and choreographers will be performing in the round, with Cristina Cazorla and Francisco Serrano also sharing their extensive Flamenco and Boléro dance knowledge in two special masterclasses.

Tickets for their wide range of events are on sale now

The Horton is the winner of the Surrey Heritage Awards 2022.
