Pianist Simon Callaghan joins forces with Bristol Symphony Orchestra for an evening of stunning classical and romantic works. 

Bristol Symphony Orchestra are supporting Age UK Bristol this April by giving a concert with Steinway Artist, Simon Callaghan.

An Evening of Classical Music (in support of Age UK Bristol) will take place on Saturday 22 April, 7.30pm at St Mary Redcliffe Church.

Age UK is a wholly independent local charity which has evolved from a small user-led organisation formed in 1995, to a charity delivering a wide-ranging programme of support services to older people over the age of 50 years. The charity delivers support services throughout the city with a particular focus on reaching disadvantaged older people in Bristol's most deprived neighbourhoods.

Age UK Bristol's aim is to support older people in the city to live independently in the community for as long as they wish to do so, to realise their aspirations and ambitions, and to make informed choices to maintain the best quality of life in later year. The charity is committed to promote a positive view of the contribution that older people make to society.

Throughout its history Age UK has worked in close partnership with the local statutory, community and voluntary sector, and is an active member of a number of key local and regional networks.

The charity has gained a reputation for being innovative, strategic and forward thinking and is the lead partner in the Bristol Ageing Better Partnership, which has a membership of over 100 local organisations.
