The Red Hedgehog is delighted to announce that, following a period of renovation, we will be re-opening our doors as a concert venue this September 2016!
We are thrilled that the internationally celebrated pianist PETER DONOHOE has agreed to launch the new season, when he embarks on a Mozart cycle on SUNDAY 4 SEPTEMBER. We are also pleased to welcome the return of the distinguished pianist JAMES LISNEY with performances of Schubert and Chopin.
Other concerts will include The Lilium Trio (Holly
Lowe, Suzannah Watson and Alison Ruscoe and, towards Christmas, the exciting ensemble Casa Margarita with a vivid programme of classical Spanish song and flamenco, accompanied by traditional Spanish guitar, piano and fiddle.
Dates of these and further concerts will be announced over the following weeks.
As we announce our re-opening, we’d like to take this opportunity to offer warmest thanks to THORNHILL PIANOS, who have most generously agreed to sponsor The Red Hedgehog with a lovely new reconditioned Bechstein B grand piano, which becomes our new concert instrument, from May this year.
A BIG THANK YOU
TO OUR SPONSORS!

To all Red Hedgehog FRIENDS & SUPPORTERS
We would love your support!
Setting up and trying to keep The Red Hedgehog afloat over the years has proved a Herculean task, made more difficult by high rents and the difficulties of running a classical music programme without any subsidy, whilst trying to support acclaimed artists with respectable fees and younger artists with as low hire charges as we could manage.
In preparation for our Autumn re-opening, we are about to launch a crowdfunding campaign to provide funds for necessary repairs and renovation throughout the venue and to support what we hope will be a regular platform for emerging young artists, for which this venue would seem to provide an ideal fit.
If you have enjoyed coming to concerts at The Red Hedgehog, if you value small independent venues for the platform they provide artists at all levels of experience, and if you appreciate all that this small venue has achieved and still strives to achieve - and would be willing to support us with a financial contribution, we would be deeply grateful.
Your early support will be invaluable, as we launch our upcoming crowdfunding campaign. Thank you! BANK DETAILS
