Friday Lunchtime Concerts

If you've never been inside LSO St Luke's then these free Friday lunchtime concerts are a must! Come and discover more about music and instruments of the orchestra in the beautiful setting of the Jerwood Hall in specially designed concerts by LSO musicians and students from the Guildhall School.

The concerts offer an informal introduction to the LSO and the world of music-making. Our presenter Rachel Leach talks about the works and the instruments, and there are opportunities to ask questions of Rachel and the musicians.

Each concert begins at 12.30pm and lasts for 45 minutes. The Café is open for tea and coffee before the concert from 12pm.

There's no need to book, the concerts are free and you can just turn up on the day.

Not suitable for under-5s
