Thornbury Orchestra will be performing some of the greatest music written for the big screen including Star Wars, Gladiator, Big Country, James Bond, Titanic, E.T. and many more.
The second half of the concert will be Gillis - Symphony X and some well known festive tunes. This will be a wonderful musical extravaganza and we encourage the audience to come dressed as their favourite film character!
