Pre-concert talks

Our free pre-concert talks offer a fascinating insight into the music you are about to experience.

Before the start of each major concert in the Town Hall our knowledgeable guest speakers offer you fascinating insights into the programme you are about to hear. This is your chance to discover more about the composers, music and musicians, and enrich your concert-going experience.

Join us in the Concert Chamber and let us set the scene for the concert to come.

For the 2024 Season all pre-concert talks will start at 6.45pm
