Series

Take your seat for a Sunday afternoon concert in the company of 80 of the most talented musicians in London.

The Philharmonia Orchestra’s Sunday matinees start at 3pm and finish around 5pm. Royal Festival Hall is within easy reach of Waterloo, Charing Cross and Embankment stations, so it’s a great place to meet up with friends and family. Why not make a day of it and enjoy a meal before or after the concert?

Matinees are a great way to give young people their first experience of live classical music too; the Philharmonia Orchestra welcomes children over the age of seven to any of its concerts, and tickets for anyone aged 18 and under are just £8.
