Friday Lunchtime Concerts

Free concerts at LSO St Luke's

Want to know more about classical music but not sure where to start?

Make the most of your lunchbreak and enjoy a free, 45-minute informal concert at LSO St Luke’s. With introductions from presenter Rachel Leach, these free concerts are the perfect opportunity to learn more about music and the instruments of the orchestra!

Tickets are free, just turn up! Tickets are given on the door on a first come first served basis, so please arrive in good time to avoid disappointment.

The majority of our seats are no longer socially-distanced, however some rows of seats in the stalls remain configured in socially-distanced singles and pairs, for those that would prefer to use them. All seats are unallocated – you are free to sit wherever you wish.

Please consider staff and fellow visitors and continue to wear a face covering if you can, even after you've taken your seat in the Hall. Find out more about how we're keeping our venue safe here.
