Classical Music Concerts

Grand Junction is available for hire as a classical performance venue – for classical concerts, Christmas concerts, choral and even opera –  as a rehearsal space and for recordings. The church is Grade I* listed and is renowned for its superb acoustics for small sized orchestras and choral programmes.

Grand Junction is the home of St Mary Magdalene Music Society. The Music Society provides the forces for our annual All Souls’ Day Requiem and the annual Durufle Memorial Recital. Maurice Durufle conducted the British premiere of his “Cum Jubilo” Mass here (with Madame Durufle at the organ) in 1968. The organ has also been played by Jean Langlais, Sir Nicholas Jackson and other major composers for organ. The organ is a John Compton from 1933, and it is possible for it to be available for concerts.

The church of St Mary Magdalene hosts Christmas Carol Concerts for local schools and charities at reduced rates.
