These performances are particularly suitable for individuals or groups who feel more comfortable attending concerts in a relaxed environment. Everyone is welcome including people with autism, sensory and communication impairments and learning disabilities. Suitable for over-5s.

We hope you will join us either as a member of the audience at LSO St Luke's (or from the comfort of your own home if you're watching the stream) where you'll be free to move and make as much sound as you like!
