Thames Concerts (founded in the 1960s) www.thamesconcerts.com is a charitable foundation which exists to promote and present an annual series of high-quality concerts in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. Through its connections, Thames Concerts is able to bring world-class musicians to the Borough, and also provide an opportunity for local youth orchestras and choirs to perform. The organisation also aims to support musical education via our programme of music and other events.
Thames Concerts remains the only organisation in the Borough ensuring that professional, top-level performances (we believe on a par with the Wigmore Hall) may be heard in the Borough at a reasonable price, without the ever-increasing cost of a journey into central London, and the high concert ticket prices often incurred. The foundation also offers a number of attractive ticketing options including a 10% advance booking discount, free admission for full-time students, under-16s, and accompanying carers of the disabled, and also operates a generous Friends and Patrons scheme.
