    Nikki Usher on her ethnographic study of life inside the New York Times.

    Competition Time

    Here is a treat for all fans of the outstanding British baritone, Sir Thomas Allen. Starting on Monday, we'll be offering a pair of tickets to see him perform Schubert’s stunning Die Winterreise D. 911 accompanied by Joseph Middleton on piano at the National Concert Hall on Sunday 5th October at 3pm, in the first of the Sunday Matinée Series concerts. The prize also includes a two course meal for two at the Terrace Café on site, with a glass of Prosecco on arrival, and an overnight stay for two people at the award-winning Brooks Hotel, with breakfast the next morning.
