This is Season 32 of the coffee concerts, which take place in Emmanuel between the end of September and the beginning of July.
All concerts begin at 11.00 and include our special ‘Coffee Concert blend’ of coffee from the Cheese Hamlet and other delicious sustenance. There is also a dedicated Coffee Concert Facebook page and the programme can also be viewed below.
Admission is free, with a retiring collection in aid of refurbishment at St James and Emmanuel, and the RNCM Awards Fund.
The concerts feature current students of the RNCM or those who are alumni of the College. There are also performances by other musicians with no direct link with the college.
