Spring and Summer 2021 Cancellations

Due to Covid-19, it has been necessary to make changes to our Spring and Summer events. Unfortunately the originally planned LSO concerts at the Barbican between 7 January and 13 June are no longer able to take place, along with events at LSO St Luke's between January and May.

We are planning to present a revised series of broadcasts from LSO St Luke's and the Barbican during this period, as well as welcoming audiences as soon as we are able to.
