Wednesday Lunchtime Concerts

February Concerts Poster

Soundbites, as its name suggests, combines a selection of soups, rolls, sandwiches, cakes and hot drinks available from 12:00 with a short (35-45 mins), unticketed, admission free concert at 1:00 pm. These concerts are run to contribute to the Music Development Fund, which supports our musical work with young people in the town. Concert series dates normally match school term-times.

Our 2020 Spring Season runs from 8th January to 18th March.

Please note that, due to Corona Virus outbreak, the concert on Wednesday 18th is cancelled and that we are deferring the commencement of our Summer Season until the outbreak has passed.
