Sussex Musicians Club

About us

ImageWe are a community of classical music lovers, both performers and listeners.

Our series of informal musical evenings features artists drawn from our membership, and runs from September to June. The repertoire ranges from early music right up to the present day, combining the familiar with items less often performed.

Except where indicated, all of our concerts are at Brighton Unitarian Church, New Road, Brighton BN1 1UF, on Saturdays at 7.30 pm.

Annual membership is £25, and includes free admission for the year.

Admission for non-members is £5.
