‘For classical music, it's the Oscars, the BAFTAs and the Grammys all rolled into one' BBC Radio 3

We newly present the RPS Awards in a fresh and open format, with a vastly-reduced ticket price giving more music-lovers and music-makers than ever before the opportunity to get together and feel part of the festivities. Given the national story they tell, we are pleased to be presenting the RPS Awards for the first time ever out of London. Tickets have never been more affordable – top price £25, with a number of seats at only £10 for those who book early – and this year every guest will receive a complimentary interval drink. The foyer bars will stay open late and, as ever, guests are invited to dress ‘celebratory’. The RPS Awards are proudly presented in association with BBC Radio 3, with co-hosts Elizabeth Alker and Linton Stephens.

We would be so delighted for you to make the journey with us. Please share the date and talk to colleagues and friends about coming along together, to join us for what promises to be a very special, uplifting occasion for classical music.
