Live Music returns to Southwold (again…!)

I’m delighted to announce in deja-vu fashion that live music will once again be returning to Southwold with two lunchtime concerts in St. Edmund’s Church on Tuesday 22nd June and Tuesday 6th July, staged by the Southwold Music Trust.

The concerts will begin at 1pm and last just under an hour.

A socially distanced audience will be able to attend live in St Edmund’s Church, but the concerts will also be streamed live via Facebook live, YouTube, and into local care homes.

Earlier on the same morning we shall also stage a special event for the children of Southwold Primary School, livestreamed into the school classrooms.

In both concerts I will be accompanying violinists Magnus and Marije Johnston, who so successfully staged a number of outdoor concerts on South Green during the first lockdown this time last year and who have been instrumental in keeping live music going in Southwold throughout the last difficult year.

With several key events such as the Southwold Arts Festival cancelled for the second successive year, these live concerts are more important than ever and we are very grateful to all those who have supported us in so many ways, not least the Southwold Trust, Paisley Charitable Trust, and many individual private sponsors who made financial donations.

Tickets can be booked by phone on 0333 666 3366 or online at All tickets are £15 and seating will be on a first come first served basis. Please purchase a ticket in advance as it is likely that selling tickets on the door will not be permitted due to covid safety restrictions.

More information on these concerts and all our work can be found on the Southwold Music Trust website ( or on Facebook @southwoldconcertseries or Twitter @southwoldcs.
