St Bride's: Music



St Bride's has held free, lunchtime recitals for over 25 years. We have felt immense sympathy for all those artists whose recitals have had to be postponed or cancelled in recent times because of Covid-19 restrictions.

However, we are pleased to announce that from Friday 11th September our recital series will resume in church with programmes presented each Tuesday & Friday at 1:15pm.

St Bride's has achieved Visit England's "We're Good to Go" accreditation meaning that we meet Public Health England's safety guidelines. A verger will be on hand at the recital to steward the event and we thank you for your co-operation. Please note, face coverings remain compulsory in churches.

There is a list of upcoming recitals below with links to further details of each.

Our weekly online recital will continue for the time being. These will be streamed on Facebook Premiere at 1:15pm on Tuesdays, lasting about 30 minutes. You can listen 'as live' or at a later date.

If you are a performer who would like to give a recital please email Bob Bryan on with your CV and you will be contacted directly.
