The Hermes Experiment are experimentalists and communicators and their music is boldly entertaining.

Presented and supported by the The Michael Cuddigan Trust, they perform three new works commissioned during lockdown, alongside a mixed programme of delightfully entertaining oddities and reworkings of classics.

Their energy and skill will be a refreshing experience and a wonderful welcome back to live music at Blackheath Halls, which we have dearly missed.
