Coffee Concerts are back LIVE! at the Holywell Music Room

We’re excited to announce the return of live weekly Coffee Concerts to the Holywell after an absence of some 16 months. To ensure Covid safety is maximised in these early days of lockdown relaxation, please note that for the time being the Holywell will be restricted to half its usual capacity to allow social distancing (preferably at least one metre between individuals who are not in the same household or bubble) and facemark wearing inside the hall will be mandatory. Since ticket numbers are so limited, please book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Please note also that we will need your contact details at the time tickets are purchased.

Scroll down for full details of all the live Coffee Concerts lined up so far for our summer and autumn 2021 seasons…

Every “virtual” Coffee Concert is still available to enjoy on our YouTube channel

If you haven’t yet managed to catch all the superb performances we have recorded over the past 12 months, never fear! They’re all still available at the YouTube link above (red icon). The costs involved in producing those concerts included venue hire during recording, musicians’ fees, video production and editing, and communications expenses. If you have enjoyed any of them, please consider making a donation to help us cover those costs. You can use the “Donate” button below to send us funds via Paypal or your credit/debit card. Alternatively, you can (if you prefer) use the email form on the Contact Us page of this website to request details of how to donate directly by cheque or Faster Payment.
