Coffee Concerts Winter and Spring 2022 Programmes

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
  • Facemask 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 and Spring 2022 so far or click on the appropriate date below to see what’s happening on that particular day…
