Classical music lovers can begin 2017 in style with a magical musical break at The Grand Hotel in Eastbourne, as it welcomes back the celebrated London Mozart Players for a weekend of entertainment from Friday 3 to Sunday 5 February.
Returning to the five-star seaside hotel for the 15th year, the world-renowned British Chamber Orchestra is a firm favourite of the hotel and its guests and the annual weekend is set to be as popular as ever.
