Event Information

All our lunchtime events begin at 1pm and are free entry, but space is limited, so please book in advance to avoid disappointment. Children aged five and over are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult.

All the concerts feature introductory ‘listening guides’ prepared by the performers and will be followed by a brief opportunity to discuss the work afterwards.

When you book you have the option to pay a £3, £5 or £10 donation to the Student Scholarship Fund, which exists to support those students who would like to take advantage of an opportunity to extend and enrich their studies in some way but lack the resources. For example, the Fund would support the study of a second instrument (or voice); a masterclass off-campus; a summer school residency; or the purchase of specialist equipment or software.

Venues are either St Gregory’s Centre for Music or Anselm Studio 1, both on our North Holmes Road campus. Our campus car parks are reserved for staff permit holders only.

This event finished on 18 October 2022.
