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.
