MUSIC, literature, drama and film are among the attractions in the autumn programme of arts events and exhibitions at the University of Hertfordshire.

Opening the season on Sunday evening will be a 40th anniversary celebratory performance by the de Havilland Philharmonic which has been written by artistic director Howard Burrell.

Later this month on Friday, October 23, Tasmin Little, the subject of a television documentary by the South Bank Show in 2008, will be presenting her ground-breaking project The Naked Violin in the Weston Auditorium.

Her concert, at 6pm, will demonstrate the wonder that can be achieved on the instrument.

A special double bill screening of German Expressionist film classics accompanied by a rousing live music score from world-renowned pianist Neil Brand can be seen on Tuesday, November 3.

Dr Caligari can be seen at 6.30pm and Nosferatu at 8.15pm, demonstrating the coming together of two distinct art forms - live classical music and influential silent film.

Children's author and illustrator James Mayhew returns to the stage with a children's concert at 3.30pm on Sunday, November 8.

James will create illustrations live on stage accompanied by the de Havilland Philharmonic Orchestra as he tells tales of magic and mystery which inspired composers.

Tickets for all events during the season can be booked through the box office on 01707 281127 or by emailing uharts@herts.ac.uk and the full event listing can be found at www.uharts.ac.uk/about-us/arts-and-galleries
