Friday Lunchtime Concerts
All concerts start at 1.00 pm and last for about 45 minutes.
The concerts are free with a voluntary retiring collection.
No tickets are needed – everyone is very welcome.
We attract many of the best musicians in London, and aim for a ‘Wigmore Hall’ standard of performance.
All concerts are organised by Hugh Mather. We have a fine Bosendorfer concert grand piano which was previously used by the BBC for broadcasts from Maida Vale studios.
Musicians wishing to perform should write to Dr Mather at email@example.com .
All proceeds go to St Barnabas Funds. Over £210,000 has been raised since 2007.
