Upcoming Concerts

Our concert society is pleased to welcome you to the 26th edition of the St Anne’s Bach Festival, an annual tradition dating back to 1996. Throughout July we offer a lunchtime recital every Friday (and a concluding rush-hour concert on the final Friday) focusing on the music of J S Bach, his family and contemporaries.

All the lunchtime events are free of charge with a retiring collection. The 29 July rush-hour concert - our Bach Festival finale - will be ticketed, with admission by programme at the door.

An archive of past concerts is available below.
