 The Lawson Trio also has its own interactive show ‘Starlight Squid’, in collaboration with animateur Jessica Maryon-Davies, which is aimed at Keystage 2 children and which the group has performed twice at Wigmore Hall, as well as at Winchester Chamber Music Festival, to great critical acclaim.

 The Lawson Trio has constructed pre-concert talks for Music in the Round and for their own World War One Festival at Kings Place and very much enjoy introducing audiences to their programmes through pre-concert events, post-concert discussions and full-length lecture-recitals.
