Barber Concerts at 75

Help us celebrate!

Autumn 2020 is particularly notable for Barber Concerts as the 75th anniversary of the series officially starting. We would love to hear about some of your favourite performances or experiences in the hall over the years.

Please share your stories with us by emailing Emma Margetson at or by tweeting @BarberConcerts using #BarberConcerts75. You are welcome to share your memories or even send us a short video of yourself talking about your experience.

This may include (but not restricted to):

  • Memorable and/or favourite concerts and performances
  • The Barber Lunchtime and/or Evening Concert Series
  • The Barber Concert Hall itself 
  • Memories of audiences and attending concerts with friends, family, colleagues etc. 

Please send us your experiences by Friday 16 October and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or require any further information in the meantime. 

We will be sharing everyone’s stories on the Barber website, in a special newsletter, and on our social media channels in November.

We look forward to celebrating Barber Concerts 75th anniversary with you soon!
