    As any photographer knows, light comes in different strengths and contexts. It can be dawning or fading - and then there is perpetual light, the light of heaven. Celestial light is a feature of our choral festival this season, though the more terrestrial kinds are there too. Vaughan Williams Lark was ascending towards the sky, but was still earthbound. The Lux aeterna of Victorias and Faurs Requiems has a different glow. We all rejoice to see the light of day, with its sense of joining us to worlds we cannot see and there is surely no more inspiring subject to sing about. Peter Phillips Artistic Director

    The veteran Labour politician Tony Benn talks about his life in politics and what he thinks about the changes in the Labour party.

    Expect an evening of frank responses and entertaining political anecdotes. This is a welcome sequel to his original legendary theatre tour.

    I think people are fed up with sound bites, spin, sensation and scandal from politicians. What people really want is a chance to discuss issues that affect all our lives, the things that really matter, and that we have a discussion in a sensible, uninterrupted and civilised manner says Benn, adding A theatre is an excellent venue for this kind of intimate evening and it is where political debate is really happening today. I get quite excited by this opportunity of bringing politics back to the people, which is probably not a good thing for a man of my age! he laughs.
