Join us for this special evening of movie music and celebrate the courage and resolve of some of the screen’s greatest heroes. From superhuman to supernatural, from the battlefield to the boxing ring, inspirational tales of heroism have shaped our cinematic experiences for over a century. Iconic heroes such as James Bond, Indiana Jones and Harry Potter have become embedded in popular culture, their uplifting theme music capturing the audience’s imagination and in-turn themselves becoming short hand for valour and daring. 

This concert is part of the Philharmonia at the Movies series
