Music at Christchurch Priory

The popular series of organ concerts takes place weekly on Thursdays, with 10 concerts each term.

The organ console is moved to the front of the nave to enable the performer to be in view of the audience.

Each recital lasts 45 minutes. Programmes are carefully balanced to ensure that there is always an approachable mix of music on offer. Performers are always of the highest quality – the draw of the organ, and the success of the series itself, ensures there is always a long list of distinguished organists wishing to play.

Evening Concerts

There is a large scale evening concert on at least one Saturday each month. 

Choral Societies, orchestras and other ensembles provide a variety of musical styles. The Priory acts as the home venue for the Grange Choral Society.

There are other, occasional concerts throughout the year, with a much enjoyed biannual Music Festival held in June.
