Tue 4 Jul, Sheldonian Theatre
The Sheldonian Theatre was erected in 1664-8 to a design by Sir Christopher Wren. Its purpose was to provide an appropriate secular venue for the principal meetings and public ceremonies of the University, and this remains its purpose today. In addition the theatre has become a leading venue for musical concerts and recitals. Please note that tickets for concerts cannot be bought at the Sheldonian.
Please note Semi Circle and Upper Gallery seats do not have backrest.
Capacity: 800 - 1000
Facilities: Toilets (also disabled), No bar

The following statement was released by Lang Lang's agents earlier today:
"Due to continued physical therapy needed on the left arm, Lang Lang is forced to prolong the cancellation of concerts until the end of the summer. He apologises for any inconvenience caused and looks forward to returning to making music soon."
We are sorry for this disappointing news and hope Lang Lang makes a full recovery soon.
In place of Lang Lang's performance, we are delighted to welcome Maxim Vengerov to perform the Brahms Violin Concerto. The second half remains unchanged (Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4).
Please note change of date from 8 July. If you have booked for 8 July 2017 please get in touch with us to confirm your attendance on 4 July 2017 or to arrange a full refund for your tickets. Once you have confirmed your attendance, replacement tickets will be dispatched (if you opted for ticket delivery at the time of purchase). You will not be admitted to the theatre with the existing 8 July tickets.
