In light of the current coronavirus lockdown, and government rules regarding gatherings, all public performances and workshops at the Barbican and LSO St Luke’s have been cancelled or postponed until further notice. Initially this period covers all public events from Monday 16 March up until Tuesday 30 June 2020, but we will continue to review this over the coming weeks, and will be in touch as soon as possible if this changes.

We appreciate your support during this time, and ask that you bear with us and the Box Office as ticket-holders are notified. If you have booked a ticket for something that’s been cancelled, you will be able claim a refund or exchange your tickets and the Barbican Centre Box Office will be in touch soon. A large number of events at the Barbican and LSO St Luke’s are being cancelled and postponed, so we ask that you are patient and avoid contacting the Box Office directly at this stage.

We are saddened to have to cancel performances, but the health and wellbeing of our audience-members, musicians and staff is of the utmost importance. We know that music can bring comfort, hope and community in difficult times, and our mission remains to ensure that this is available to everyone, everywhere. In the coming weeks we will be using our online channels to share videos of performances, articles, interviews and playlists. We invite you to join us, and to connect with other music-lovers around the world.


Witness a landmark performance in the Barbican Hall as LSO Discovery, the Orchestra’s education and community programme, celebrates its 30th anniversary.

LSO Discovery has been bringing the Orchestra and its music to everybody since 1990, through a year-round programme of over 1,000 workshops and 70 concerts, reaching hundreds of thousands of participants over its 30-year history.

In May 2020, we’re celebrating this very special milestone with a musical extravaganza from some of Discovery’s most talented music groups, with contributions from the LSO musicians who have guided our participants over the last 30 years.
