Thursday Lunchtime Concerts - Watch Online

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, upcoming lunchtime concerts will be filmed behind closed doors at Howden Minster until further notice and streamed online. Online lunchtime concerts will be released on the Howdenshire Music Project YouTube and Facebook channels.


You can also catch up with or rewatch all past online lunchtime concerts via the 'Watch' section of this website.

The free lunchtime concert series is organised by the Howdenshire Music Project, a charitable organisation which works closely with Howden Minster. The project is delighted to announce that the rest of this year's lunchtime concerts will be performed on a superb new FEURICH Model 218 grand piano, which has been generously loaned by the FEURICH piano company in Vienna for a limited period.

FEURICH's kind gesture is very timely as the project's previous piano (100+ years old and on loan) is in very poor condition and in need of replacement. To that end, Howdenshire Music Project have launched a Grand Piano Appeal which aims to raise funds to acquire the FEURICH grand piano outright as a permanent concert instrument and resource for the Howdenshire community. If you are enjoying our concerts and would like them to continue, please consider making a donation to the piano appeal here:
