London's Wigmore Hall to Launch 120th Anniversary with Free Outdoor Concerts

To celebrate the venue's anniversary, three free outdoor concerts will be held on Sunday, May 30 at Portman Square

A family-friendly concert featuring the Beaten Track Ensemble will take place at 11 AM. 12 Ensemble, an un-conducted string ensemble, will perform at 2 PM and 4:30 PM.

A limited number of unreserved seats are available at the Portman Square garden. Audience members are not permitted to sit in groups larger than six — or from over two households. Tickets can be booked on Eventbrite.

‘While we eagerly await to throw open our doors on 17 May, we are also acutely aware that not everyone will feel fully confident to return to an intimate concert hall – whether they have been vaccinated or otherwise," Wigmore Hall Director John Gilhooly said in a statement. "These free concerts provide yet another form of ‘shared experience’ where the public can enjoy music together in an open and spacious environment.

"We hope the concerts on a long weekend will prove especially attractive for the many young people who take part in the Wigmore Hall Learning programme. We are very pleased to be partnering with The Howard de Walden Estate, The Portman Estate, and Baker Street Quarter Partnership on this summer music programme."
