Header12_660x175Free Rush Hour Concerts

At the heart of the Southbank Sinfonia programme lies the Rush Hour series.

These concerts are a great way to hear our young performers, without the formalities of an orchestral concert. What’s more these concerts are free, and all guests receive a glass of wine on arrival.

Concerts take place at our home, St John’s Waterloo, adjacent to the IMAX and just opposite Waterloo Station at 6.00pm.
