Friday Lunchtime Concert

Friday 1st December
University of Salford Band

University of Salford Band

University of Salford Band

We have not been given much information on this concert, however we do know that the band will be giving the second performance of a newly commissioned work called ‘Aftershock’ from the pen of composer Martin Cordner.

This was recently premiered by the band in Regent Hall.








Our concerts usually begin at 12.30pm. Tickets for the concerts are £5* and are available on the door. 

We regret that we no longer offer a lunch before the concert. Here is a message from Elisabeth Sykes explaining why:

Due to the dwindling number of customers and the difficulty in finding volunteers we regret that the lunches prior to the Friday concerts will no longer be available.  We would like to thank our supporters past and present and I wish to thank those ladies who in the past and at the present time have given freely of their time in preparing the lunches, not to mention those who have set up and taken down the chairs and tables. Thank you everyone. We hope you will continue to support the concerts which resume on September 8th.

The church and its shop/café (The House on The Rock) are also open all day, so you are welcome to browse amongst books, cards, gifts and CDs or enjoy light refreshments before or after the concert.
