Sharing food together and listening to music with others are two experiences at the heart of our lives as social beings – Sound Bites connects the two worlds. Charity and social enterprise Social Bite will create a delicious, themed picnic box inspired by the music for you to enjoy as we perform in this live outdoor concert, for the first time in over a year.

We may have been separated, but during this time the unstoppable force of nature has continued its journey: that story is spectacularly told through the enduring power and high-octane energy of Vivaldi’s iconic masterpiece, The Four Seasons. It may have been written in the 1700s, but this piece speaks to the volatility and ever-changing pace of our world today with a piercing, poignant precision. We’ll enjoy an extended celebration of our sunniest season with the addition of William Grant Still’s Summerland. Join us to celebrate new beginnings and the passing of time in this special one hour performance.

Finally, it is time to be reunited and enjoy that warm feeling of listening to live music with others. We’re delighted to be part of the Live at No.40 cultural hub with Scottish Opera and Citizens Theatre to perform in the dedicated, safe outdoor space, and we cannot wait to welcome our audiences back.

The outdoor area is covered, but make sure you dress for the weather to protect yourself from any of the seasons we may be experiencing that day…we can guarantee the atmosphere will be cosy, but we can’t promise anything about the Glasgow climate!


10% of ticket sales will be donated to Scottish charity and social enterprise Social Bite.

Picnics are available for purchase at the time you buy your ticket – these are available in standard, vegan and veggie and there will be the option to give us additional information about dietary requirements or allergies when you book. You can if you wish just buy a ticket for the concert without a picnic.

We’re doing everything we can to keep audiences, performers and staff members safe, and we want you to feel assured that we are taking every measure possible to make sure this is the case.
