Coffee Concerts Winter 2022 Programme

Welcome to the new season of Coffee Concerts. We have every reason to hope that the worst of the Covid pandemic is over for the vast majority of people in the UK, but we still feel that it makes sense to do everything we can to maximise the safety of our audience. For that reason, please note for the time being, we will maintain our “Covid safety” policy:

  • Fewer tickets will be made available for each Coffee Concert to allow social distancing
  • Facemark wearing inside the hall will continue to be mandatory
  • We will need to record the contact details for all audience members at the time tickets are purchased

Since ticket numbers are so limited, please book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Scroll down for full details of all the live Coffee Concerts lined up for Winter 2022 so far or click on the appropriate date below to see what’s happening on that particular day…

Jan 9    Jan 16    Jan 23    Jan 30   Feb 6    Feb 13   Feb 20   Feb 27

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 recorded at the height of the pandemic, 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 recover 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.
