Lunchtime Concerts Series

The Cambridge University Lunchtime Concert Series (CULCS) is an exciting series of free lunchtime concerts running throughout Cambridge Full Term. Taking place every Tuesday at 1.10pm in West Road Concert Hall, these concerts showcase the University’s finest performers with a wide variety of repertoire and regularly attract an audience of over 300 people. Previous years have seen performances of Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time, Stravinsky’s Les noces and Panufnik’s Violin Concerto; and performances led by Nick Mulroy, Professor Maggie Faultless and a number of budding student conductors. 

We are delighted that the CULCS Michaelmas 2021 will be taking place at 1:10pm in West Road Concert Hall from Tuesday 26 October to Tuesday 30 November. Please see below for full concert details. Admission to all of these concerts is free, and no pre-booking is required.
