Announcing our new partnership with the Royal Philharmonic Society

posted on 12/07/23


We are pleased to let you know about a new partnership between Martin Randall Travel and the Royal Philharmonic Society, which we hope will bring you even closer to the finest musicians. The RPS is one of the UK’s foremost music charities in which music-lovers play a vital part supporting and protecting the musicians we all cherish. 

We are thrilled to be collaborating and, to launch the partnership, we invite you to join us online on Tuesday 3rd October for an exclusive free webinar episode, co-hosted by MRT and RPS showcasing a very special guest. Baritone Roderick Williams is one of the most acclaimed and beloved British musicians – a great friend of Martin Randall Travel, having performed on many of our music festivals. He is also a Trustee of the RPS and devoted to its mission: the perfect figure to launch our new association.

Uniquely Roderick will give you a glimpse of his life at home, talking about his creative passions and the music that inspires him, straight from his music room. Roderick looks forward to welcoming you as he draws back the curtain on his performing life.

This episode will be broadcast live at 4.30pm (London) on 3rd October on Zoom and will be recorded for those who wish to watch later.
