Friday Lunchtime Concerts

All concerts are on Friday at 1pm and last for about 45 minutes.  
The concerts are free with a voluntary retiring collection.
No tickets are needed, and everyone is very welcome.
We attract many of the best musicians in London. 
We have a fine Bösendorfer concert grand piano previously owned by the BBC.
