Rush Hour Concerts

A lot can happen in 60 minutes...

You can be transported to history’s turning points, stand victorious against all doubts, stage a rebellion, or be the one who rediscovers lost treasures.

All this and more awaits in our bite-sized Rush Hour Concerts this year, staged in the heart of London, just opposite Waterloo Station.

Book your free ticket at southbanksinfonia.co.uk, then pay what you can at the performance. It’s as simple (and dramatic, thrilling, and moving) as that.
