Rush Hour Concerts

Escape the everyday.

Want an alternative to squeezing into a crowded tube carriage? 

On Thursdays, swap the crush for a bite-sized Rush Hour Concert where you can hear an orchestra of rising stars perform music that inspires and beguiles, all in the space of one hour. 

At our home opposite Waterloo station, you’ll hear music from across the last 400 years with our musicians giving you their take on what makes these pieces so great. 

To top it all off you even get a free glass of wine as you walk through the door. 

Book your free ticket at southbanksinfonia.co.uk, then give what you can at the performance. It’s as simple as that.
