Contemporaries Events

Each season we choose three must-see concerts for our Contemporaries Subscription Series. In addition to this, we organise social events throughout the year to ensure you can catch up outside of the concert hall. Please ensure that all dates are in your diary!

LPO Members' Reheasals - Executive and Executive Plus Members can book to attend selected rehearsals at the Royal Festival Hall.
Contact Rosie Morden for further details and bookings.  

Please note that while your concert tickets are included within your subscription you will be asked to confirm your attendance at concerts roughly two weeks beforehand to ensure we can allocate the appropriate number of seats. On concert nights all tickets for Contemporaries confirmed as attending will be held at the Box Office for collection between 18.30 and 19.25. If you are unable to make a performance you are welcome to transfer your tickets to friends or family.

We also love when Contemporaries bring along guests (the more the merrier!) and guest packages can be purchased at £35 per person, to include both a seat next to you and access to the interval bar. 


  • What is the Contemporaries Subscription Series? Three ‘must see’ concerts each season with delicious cocktails during the interval in The Sipsmith Bar. Tickets are located in the specially-reserved Contemporaries seating area in the rear stalls.
  • What is the Champagne Saturday? Come along on a Saturday morning and see the Orchestra rehearse in their jeans and t-shirts followed by a glass of bubbly!
  • What is the VIP evening? The VIP evening is your chance to experience luxury entertainment with the LPO! Included is a top price concert ticket, a complimentary programme and access to the Beecham Bar for drinks and canapés before the concert and during the interval.
