Plus, put your hands together at the end of the concert and you might just be treated to more of your Viennese favourites!


What better way to start your year than with a concert of glorious music! This wonderful Viennese tradition has become a firm favourite with audiences in the North East. New Year’s Day just wouldn’t be New Year’s Day without the music of the Waltz Kings, Johann Strauss II, his family and friends, plus more lighthearted music to put a spring in your step as you dance your way home. The sound of elegance, the sound of romance, and above all, the sound of pure tuneful indulgence. Prosit!
