A Sparkling Start to the Season!

If you’re coming to the LSO’s season opening concert on Thursday 14 September, you’re in for a treat (and not just because performance promises to be fantastic)!

With the generous support of the LSO’s Official Drinks Partner, Chapel Down, we will be providing every adult member of our audience with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine before Sir Simon Rattle’s first performance with the LSO as Music Director.

We hope you will join us from 6.30pm to toast the beginning of an exciting new era for the LSO with a glass of English sparkling wine, as we see one of Britain’s most successful musicians lead the orchestra in a celebratory programme of British music.

The LSO is delighted to continue its partnership with Chapel Down, and we thank them for their commitment to the work of the Orchestra.

  • Drinks are not allowed in the concert hall, so please arrive in good time to enjoy your drinks
