Lunchtime with Scotland’s National Orchestra

We're delighted to bring you a brand new lunchtime concert series: Symphony, Soup and a Sandwich.  These concerts are a no fuss, no frills affair: just a lunch hour filled with a great symphony, delivered with passion by Scotland's National Orchestra.  And you also have the option to join us for lunch where you can enjoy soup, sandwiches, a scone with butter, cream and jam, cakes and unlimited tea and coffee, all for just £7.50. Just ask the box office for a lunch ticket when you book your concert ticket.  Lunch is served from 11.30am.

Our ever-popular Chamber Series also continues, giving you the unique chance to hear the musicians of the RSNO in an intimate chamber music setting.  Our Edinburgh Chamber Series continues in the beautiful Dovecot Studios, whilst our Glasgow Chamber Series moves into the marvellous acoustics of our brand New Auditorium in the RSNO Centre, beside the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.
