'I felt compelled to say how wonderful it is that you have renovated St Lukes for a useful purpose. My interest stems from starting my family tree and I found out that my great, great, great grandparents got married at St Lukes in 1835 so I did a search on the Internet and found it. I read about it falling into disrepair so well done LSO for breathing new life into it. I wish it happened more to some of the beautiful buildings that we have lying empty and derelict.'
Samantha Colvill

‘As with all concerts in the Jerwood Hall at LSO St Luke’s, expect the acoustics to be excellent and get tickets early as it may prove popular’.
