Lunchtime concerts (every Tuesday)

Heath Street Arts present


Following the relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions, the lunchtime concerts are now taking place in the church again. All concerts will follow current Covid guidelines.

Our weekly lunchtime concert series takes place every Tuesday. Entry is free and there is a retiring collection for the musicians, giving you the chance to support them both in listening and by giving what you can financially. You can also bring your lunch in to eat (nothing too crunchy, please!) and there is fresh tea/coffee available. Concerts begin at 1 pm.

Held at Heath Street Baptist Church - see map and get directionsAlso live streamed on the Heath Street Arts YouTube channel.

People of all ages (including children) are welcome to enjoy the informal nature of the concert, and you can come and go as you wish.

There is step-free access at the church, and wheelchair users are welcome.

Grand Siecle

A taste of Les Génies, ou Les Caractères de l'Amour (Mlle Duval).

Formed in 2018, Grand Siècle are a young historical performance ensemble based in the United Kingdom with a particular passion for the French Baroque repertoire. They largely met during their studies in the historical performance department of the Royal College of Music where they developed a love of playing early chamber music together. Madeline Claire de Berrié joined in 2018 after a discovery of a shared love of the French Airs de Cour and Margueritte Wasserman joined in 2020, after accompanying Grand Siècle on tour to the South of France.

21 September 2021 Estatē Rob Luft and Zac Gvi play Zac's original compositions and music by Joao Gilberto and Charlie Haden, concentrating on slower, evocative material with a Southern inflection. Rob is one of the most fearlessly creative guitarists of his generation, a BBC New Generation Jazz Artist who has recorded for ECM, and a lovely individual. Zac is a regular at the Lunchtime Concert Series, performing new and old music in a wide range of musical styles and ensembles.
