Summer 2021 Wigmore Series

For the first time in 2021, Wigmore Hall will open to live audiences, in line with Government guidelines. The new series of Summer concerts, devised by John Gilhooly, includes performances from the Heath Quartet, Stephen Hough, Angela Hewitt, Carolyn Sampson and a special series of concerts to celebrate the 120th Anniversary of Wigmore Hall.

The Wigmore Hall Learning Festival runs with the theme of connectivity, bringing audiences back to the Hall and reconnecting through music.

Become a Friend today for priority access to tickets throughout our Summer Series. Tickets for concerts are initially being made available to Friends of Wigmore Hall via a series of ballots.

A number of concerts will be streamed free of charge on the Wigmore Hall site. See below for full details of which concerts will be live streamed.
