SINCE the release of the first Star Wars film over 40 years ago, the ongoing interstellar saga has had a seismic impact on both cinema and culture.

Audiences around the world have been inspired by its mythic storytelling, captivating characters, ground-breaking special effects and iconic musical scores composed by John Williams.

This year the franchise’s first film, A New Hope, is coming alive in a new concert series which includes a date at the Bournemouth International Centre on November 29.

Star Wars fans will be able to experience the scope and grandeur of the beloved Star Wars film in a live symphonic concert experience.

The Oscar-winning musical score will be performed live by the Novello Orchestra.

Legendary composer Williams is well known for scoring all eight of the Star Wars saga films, beginning with 1977’s Star Wars: A New Hope for which he earned an Academy Award for Best Original Score.

His scores for Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens each were nominated for Oscars for Best Original Score. Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released on December 15, 2017, and was the UK and Ireland’s biggest film of 2017.
