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  .

All proceeds go to St Barnabas Funds.  Over £205,000 has been raised since 2007.
