    7:00pm - 7:30pm Paul Herriott chats with our own Ann Murray ahead of tonight’s concert at the Wigmore Hall on lyric fm. 
    7:30pm – 10:00pm The music continues as BBC’s Sean Rafferty hosts the live programme in celebration of “Irish Culture in Britain – A Centenary celebration”. Featuring Ailish Tynan, Tara Erraught, Robin Tritschler, Gavan Ring, Finghin Collins, The RTÉ Contempo Quartet and choirs for the Royal Irish Academy of Music and the Royal Academy of Music.
