Venues

Venues, other than the more obvious ones such as the Southbank Centre etc. Regret not yet in alphabetical order but largely as I come across them.

NB I do not myself organise concerts I simply go to them to hear the music!

1. Two places where excellent concerts are held are the two churches, the small St Marys and the larger St Barnabas in the Ealing area. Dr Hugh Mather organises these concerts.

You can see recitals which have taken place at St Marys on YouTube at
