About

‘William Woolaston’ by Thomas Gainsborough

The Georgian Concert Society is dedicated to the promotion of historically informed performances of the highest standard on period instruments. It organises a regular series of Early Music concerts currently held in two venues in central Edinburgh: St Andrew’s & St George’s West Church in the Georgian New Town, and St Cecilia’s Hall, a unique oval 18th-century concert hall in the heart of the Old Town. The concert series features not only established Early Music performers but also exciting younger groups. Workshops and talks related to the concerts are also organised.

All concerts begin at 7.30pm. In the 2020–2021 season, four concerts will be held at St Andrew’s & St George’s West Church, 13 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 2PA, and two in St Cecilia’s Hall, 50 Niddry Street, Edinburgh EH1 1LG.

Refreshments are available from 6.45pm and seats can be reserved on arrival. Concerts last approximately two hours and refreshments are on sale during the interval.

All are welcome at the concerts. School pupils and students are particularly encouraged to attend; complimentary or reduced price tickets are usually available.
