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 introductions from presenter Rachel Leach, these free concerts are the perfect opportunity to learn more about music and the instruments of the orchestra!

Tickets are free, just turn up!

The majority of our seats are no longer socially-distanced, however some rows of seats in the stalls remain configured in socially-distanced singles and pairs. All seats are unallocated – you are free to sit wherever you wish in the stalls (distanced or non-distanced) or the balcony. 

Tickets are given on the door on a first come first served basis. Please arrive in good time to avoid disappointment.


All concerts start at 12.30pm
