Lizzie’s Ball's uplifting Classical Kicks! began as a performance residency upstairs at Ronnie Scott's and has now sold out every show since 2012. If you love classical but enjoy other styles, performed to the highest quality with a down-to-earth approach, this is for you.

Classical Kicks!​ is an inspiring, uplifting and entertaining primarily classical music programme, flavoured with jazz, world, folk, and bluegrass, performed by world-class highly versatile musicians.

Lizzie Ball created Classical Kicks! in order to have the most serious fun possible with classical music programming and with the musicians who shared her versatility, imbibing her down-to-earth, vibrant and high-quality approach. Aside from their regular concerts at Ronnie Scott’s, Lizzie has performed various versions of this touring show with her Classical Kicks! band around the world.

Classical Kicks! strives for a fundamental truth, the connection between performer and audience, whatever the context.
