Friday Lunchtime Concerts

Free concerts at LSO St Luke's

Want to know more about classical music but not sure where to start?

Make the most of your lunchbreak and enjoy a free, 45-minute informal concert at LSO St Luke’s. With live performances and introductions from presenter Rachel Leach, these free concerts are the perfect opportunity to learn more about music and the instruments of the orchestra, so just turn up and enjoy!

During autumn, we’re exploring music inspired by landscapes.

Each concert begins at 12.30pm and lasts for 45 minutes. The Café is open for light refreshments before the concert from 11.30am and after the concert until 2pm. The concerts are suitable for those over the age of 5.

There's no need to book, the concerts are free and you can just turn up on the day. To avoid disappointment please arrive in good time to get a seat, as these concerts are popular!

Relaxed Performances

Twice a term we put on Relaxed Performances, 11.15-11.45am. These are open to everyone and are particularly suitable for individuals or groups who feel more comfortable in a more relaxed environment. The performances are often attended by parents with young children, individuals with autism, sensory and communication impairments and learning disabilities. Audience members are free to leave and re-enter the room at any point, and we are relaxed about noise and movement during the music.

The next Relaxed Performance: Friday 7 September 2018
