The London Philharmonic Orchestra’s annual Gala is one of the most illustrious events in the Orchestra's calendar and an essential component of the Orchestra's year-round fundraising efforts. Each Gala brings together friends and supporters or the LPO - longstanding and new - to celebrate the Orchestra's varied and exciting activities, on the concert platform and beyond.

Each year a new theme takes us to a prestigious London venue, such as the stunning Old Royal Naval College in 2016 to celebrate Shakespeare's 'Sounds and Sweet Airs' and London's historic Guildhall in 2018 to 'Share the Wonder' of the LPO's 30 years of Education and Community work.

The 2020 Gala takes us to Whitehall's Banqueting House to celebrate the LPO's heritage both on the concert platform and in the opera house, highlighting over fifty years as Resident Symphony Orchestra at Glyndebourne Festival Opera and ahead of our most ambitious opera project yet - two full cycles of Wagner's Ring in 2021.

The evening includes a Champagne Taittinger reception, specially curated LPO performance under Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor Vladimir Jurowski with special guest artists, as well as a sumptuous three course dinner and exciting silent auction.

The LPO Gala 2020 - A Night at the Opera - will take place on Monday 1 June 2020.
