The British Paraorchestra

The world’s only large-scale ensemble of professional disabled musicians, who have played alongside Coldplay and at the closing ceremony at the 2012 Paralympics, are bringing their latest piece, The Nature of Why to the North West for the first time.

Reinventing the orchestra for the 21st century, The Paraorchestra  channels the artistic vision of its Artistic Director and, the award-winning British conductor Charles Hazlewood.

The Nature of Why smashes the divide between musicians, dancers and the audience, in a performance bursting with passion and joyous intensity.

The show also features a cinematic live-score from Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, an ensemble of musicians from the British Paraorchestra and four extraordinary dancers.

There will be a pre-performance touch tour for blind and partially sighted audience members. Plus, the performance will have Audio Description via headsets and British Sign Language interpretation.

Please note that due to the nature of the 1- hour performance, seating is limited.  

The event is hosted by Access Fylde Coast, a pioneering project spearheaded by Disability First and funded by the Coastal Communities Fund to Boost Tourism, Bolster The Local Economy and Break Down The Barriers of Disability.
