Alongside Bath Camerata, James Gilchrist (Evangelist) leads a starry line up of some of Europe’s great soloists and players in Bach’s dramatic masterpiece, retelling the story of Jesus’ last days. You won’t find better musicians to perform this amazing work. By turns exciting, beautiful and heart-breaking, this is a concert not to be missed!

£45 VIP tickets include reserved seating at the front of the nave, a pre-concert drinks and canapes reception in the church vaults and a concert programme for each pair of tickets. All other tickets are unreserved within blocks. Transept seats have a good side on view of the performance area but those choosing to sit in the side aisles will see very little.
NOTE: the £28 and £22 tickets are now SOLD OUT but availability remains good for the rear of the Nave, the transepts and the side aisles. For an indication of the view from the transepts, we have mocked up an image here (opens in new window).
