Oxford Coffee Concerts

The Oxford Coffee Concerts began in 1986 and have since established themselves as one of the most successful chamber music series in the country. The concerts are held nearly every Sunday morning throughout the year in the stunning setting of the Holywell Music Room, with performances by the best musicians and ensembles from this country and abroad.

The Oxford Coffee Concerts have been described by The Independent as one of the top ten things to do in Oxford, and they are recognised as one of the most successful chamber music series in the country.
