Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

Following numerous sell-out shows here since 2016, we are delighted that BCO are returning to The Swallow Theatre in 2023.

From Balkan and Russian traditional pieces, to artful distillations of the masterpieces by the great Romantic composers, to Gaelic folk anthems, their infectious music will get into your veins and stay there forever.

A small but impeccably formed ensemble of just four players, the BCO combines violin, guitar, accordion, double bass, saz & balalaika to dazzling effect, creating an awesome aural alchemy normally only characteristic of far larger ensembles.

“Your music is really great” - Helena Bonham Carter

“Their arrangements are brilliant, their improvisations inspired. Their humour and, on
occasion, sheer silliness hides a real brilliance of execution. In every bit of the material the charming irony hides really serious and focussed music-making. This is entertainment of a high order” - Sir Roger Norrington
