FREE music on the grass!
Inside Out is a series of free lunchtime outdoor music concerts outside LSO St Luke's during the summer months.
We invite people to bring their lunches and picnics and enjoy the summer sunshine with some music – a perfect break from the office and great for families. You don't need to book in advance, just turn up on the day!
Inside Out returns to the Front Lawn outside LSO St Luke's on the following dates in 2014:
