Classical Cleveland has prepared a dual-strand series of concerts for the autumn.

The established concerts at Stokesley Methodist Church continue on the first Thursday of each month. In addition Classical Cleveland has launched a new series at Redcar's Tuned In Centre.

"We are really pleased to be able to present a fresh series of concerts at Tuned In because we know that there is an audience for classical music across Redcar and East Cleveland," said concert organiser Peter Sotheran.
