The university said its orchestra and choir will be performing a variety of music celebrating youth and culture in partnership with the London Mozart Players.

Royal Holloway, University of London student Lydia said: “Playing in the orchestra at Royal Holloway is where my love for performing with others sparks from.

"I am very excited to be performing with this fantastic society of musicians alongside the London Mozart Players."
