We are delighted that we can resume recitals safely on 19th May 2021 in line with the government’s roadmap out of lockdown.
Every Wednesday (except at Christmas and during August), we offer free lunchtime recitals at St Alphege Church. Everyone is welcome to attend to hear a variety of performers, from amongst our own staff, local musicians, and young professionals from further afield. The programme features singers and instrumentalists, as well as soloists and small groups. Entry is free and a retiring collection is held in aid of The Friends of St Alphege Music, registered charity 511237.
Recitals start at 1.10pm – regrettably refreshments are not currently available. The performance is usually finished by 2pm.
