Lunchtime Concerts - 2019 Programme


The Lunchtime Concerts held at Maldon United Reformed Church are organised by Churches Together in Maldon.  They aim is to present a varied and interesting programme featuring local and national musicians, some of whom are well known in the town and others who will be performing for the first time. One or two concerts a year specifically feature young musicians. 

The informal and friendly concerts are held on the second Thursday and designed to fit into the average 'lunch hour' between 1pm and 2pm.  Patrons are welcome to bring their own lunch and are free to come and go as they wish. Tea and coffee is available from 12.15pm and during the concert.  The concerts are non-profit-making events, with the musicians' fees and costs being met by the voluntary contributions collected at each concert, so no ticket or entry fee is required.
