BBC Radio 3 Concerts

Since opening its doors in 2003, LSO St Luke’s has hosted lunchtime concerts in the Jerwood Hall, in partnership with BBC Radio 3. In that time, an outstanding roster of soloists, duos and ensembles have brought hundreds of chamber pieces to life in the Hall’s world-class acoustics.

Each concert lasts approximately one hour, and is recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3 at a later date. For scheduling information, visit

Audience members are encouraged to wear a face covering during their visit. The Government guidance remains for those who test positive to stay at home for five days. Find out more about how we're keeping our venue safe here.

Multibuy discount: £10 tickets when you book for four or more BBC Radio 3 concerts in the 2022/23 season at the same time. *
