The Hackney Proms

Hackney Proms is a registered charity formed in 2004 to bring more high-quality live music to the cultural life of Hackney. Since then, we have promoted a number of very successful concerts and are delighted to have relaunched in 2018 with fantastic concerts at Shoreditch Town Hall, Hackney Showroom and the Round Chapel.

Our next gig is on Sunday 3rd November at 3pm. Tickets go on sale on 1st October. It will be a wonderful concert with eight cellos, 1 soprano and 1 violinist called Cellofest. Presenting two pieces by Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos – Bachianas Brasilieras 1 & 5 alongside a brand new, specially commissioned arrangement of Tango by David Matthews  and many other wonderful pieces by Strauss, Bach and others.

Hackney Proms is committed to presenting brilliant live music on Sundays around the borough. We want everyone to hear it, and so we have 30 tickets at £1 each available for low-income Hackney residents. Please contact Kate Conway to buy these community tickets: We believe everyone deserves music, come get yourself some!

We are so excited to have ten professionals coming to perform for Hackney Proms. The sound the cellos make together is beautiful, the music will be uplifting. Come and share the joy at the beautiful Shoreditch Town Hall.

Hackney Proms are relaxed and informal Sunday performances, with coffee and croissants available in our morning concerts, and tea and cakes available at our afternoon concerts. Some of our venues have bars, some not. Everyone is welcome, from babies to great-grandparents. We present two 40-minute halves with a twenty minute interval. Our concerts are tons of fun.

The beautiful Assembly Hall at Shoreditch Town Hall. This wonderful venue on Old Street is super easy to get to, has a fully stocked bar for drinks or teas and coffees, and is three minutes walk away from Hoxton Square or St Leonard’s churchyard if you want some outdoor time. The perfect place to hang out on a Sunday afternoon.

As a charity we need your help to make our concerts accessible and successful. You can donate to the Hackney Proms Appeal by visiting our Everyclick page or setting up a direct debit for a monthly donation.
