Time Out says
Great news: the Southbank Centre is reopening! Less great news: you can’t go in! Instead, the shows in its Inside Out season of music and literature – which runs until December 30 – will broadcast the Royal Festival Hall to the wider world, with most viewable by purchasing a ticket to watch a live stream, and a number of the concerts aired on BBC Radio 3. It’s a typically sprawling programme but there’s an emphasis on diversity, with 16 of the 57 orchestral pieces by composers of colour, plus a talk from Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza. Other names on the line-up include Kae Tempest, Dawn French, John Cleese and the winner of the 2020 Booker Prize.
