A series of informal midday concerts
Join us for a series of informal one-hour concerts at midday, featuring the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
Enjoy a delightful combination of inspirational music and good company served with refreshments on three afternoons throughout the year. The Orchestra will be in casual dress and the conductors will chat briefly about the works performed.
These concerts will take place from 12pm – 1pm (approx.), preceded by complimentary coffee, tea and biscuits in the Grand Foyer Bar. A free programme is included in the ticket price. Why not visit Rubato, our Café Bar, for lunch afterwards?

‘One orchestra making the right moves is the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. I went to see them perform the other day. Their charismatic Russian conductor, Vasily Petrenko, has inaugurated “coffee concerts” where he and orchestra replay the symphony of the night before at noon, all tickets are £15, coffee and biscuits are included, and the conductor talks to the audience. Hundreds of people came to the last one’.
