From “Let It Go” to “You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” everyone has a favourite song or composition from a film that’s close to their heart. This spring, these magical Candlelight concerts coming to Newcastle upon Tyne are paying homage to the beloved soundtracks and scores that have helped turn good movies into great ones.
Wood Hall is set to host these sensational concerts that will be celebrating the iconic soundtracks from films such as Mary Poppins and The Lion King as well as the scores by esteemed composers like Hans Zimmer. Whether you’re a self-proclaimed movie buff or just a lover of live music, these spellbinding tribute concerts are sure to leave you wowed and waiting for more.
Hans Zimmer is the mastermind behind some of the most recognisable soundtracks composed for film and TV. In fact, a lot of the drama-filled movie moments we are all familiar with are scored by Zimmer. Tracks from The Lion King, Wonder Woman, Sherlock Holmes and The Dark Knight will be reimagined at this intimate tribute concert set to celebrate the ingenious composer in two locations this spring. Wood Hall will be illuminated by the soothing flicker of candlelight while a string quartet takes on remarkable compositions from some of your favourite films.
The spellbinding Candlelight series has dazzled audiences around the world and has now arrived at Newcastle upon Tyne to share the magic in some of the city’s most incredible venues. From action-packed thrillers to animated classics, these concerts are celebrating a broad range of movie genres, so you’re sure to find the concert that’s perfect for you.
The Candlelight performances are 65 minutes long and doors open 45 minutes prior to each show.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
