Audience at a Relaxed Concert

Relaxed Concerts

Free concerts at LSO St Luke’s particularly suited for people who have sensory and communication impairments, or who are neurodiverse.

Relaxed concerts are particularly suitable for individuals or groups who feel more comfortable attending concerts in a relaxed environment. Everyone is welcome, including people who have sensory and communication impairments, or who are neurodiverse. Suitable for over-5s.

These informal concerts take place on selected Fridays from 12.30pm to 1.15pm at LSO St Luke’s on Old Street. LSO musicians perform chamber music, and the concerts are presented by Rachel Leach. There is a chance to ask questions at the end of the concert.

Booking for Accessible Seating & Groups

Concerts are free to attend, and seated on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend arriving in good time before the concert start time of 12.30pm. LSO St Luke’s opens at 11.30am, when The Crypt café opens.

If you require accessible seating or are attending in a group, please let us know so we can reserve your seats and ensure your visit is as smooth as possible. Please note that accessible seating is limited. For more information or to discuss access needs before you book, please email
