Location: Swansea Arena

Join us at Swansea Arena for Swansea Bay Business Club’s biggest ever Beaujolais Day event which promises an afternoon of comedy and musical entertainment courtesy of the world-renowned Rainer Hersch Orkestra.

On Thursday 16th November 2023, Swansea Bay Business Club will host its Beaujolais Day celebration at Swansea Arena where attendees will enjoy a delicious three-course meal and an afternoon of fun and laughter whilst enjoying some unique entertainment!

Rainer Hersch and his classical ‘Orkestra’ are a comedy-concert blended act, having performed on every major comedy stage in Britain and abroad.

Rainer is a conductor, pianist, comedian and broadcaster who has performed in over thirty countries across the globe and worked with hundreds of orchestras from the St Petersburg Philharmonic to the Tasmanian Symphony. He has fans all over the world, with his YouTube videos which have brought over 65M views to date.

Rainer graduated from Lancaster University in 1985 and started his working life in concert agencies, managing some of the great artists of the world.  At the same time, he developed a hobby – performing stand-up comedy on the London circuit. Short, unpaid slots led to longer, paid appearances which gradually developed into a parallel career.  In time, Rainer realised that this was his true vocation and gave up his last straight musical job, Touring Manager of the London Festival Orchestra, to enter the world of professional comedy.

Almost thirty years later, this unique training has kept him in constant demand – combining laughter with music. In addition to conducting orchestras around the globe, he has built up a considerable reputation as a broadcaster and presenter in the UK for the BBC and Classic FM.
