How to find us

Southbank Sinfonia’s office is in the Creative Crypt at St John’s Waterloo, with the majority of the orchestra’s rehearsals and Rush Hour concerts taking place in the church itself. To get to the Creative Crypt, go to the far left door once inside the church gates and ring the second buzzer to contact the Southbank Sinfonia team.
