An Invitation to Music

Welcome to Penrith Music Club and to our 77th Season of outstanding concerts by internationally distinguished musicians and gifted young performers with a great future.


Sadly, the coronavirus situation forced us to cancel the last two concerts of our 2019-20 season. The committee was very much hoping that we would be able to start our 77th season as planned on September 21st 2020.

Unfortunately the guidance that was given by the government in early July makes this most unlikely and we are reluctantly following the path taken by many other similar concert clubs (including Keswick and Carlisle) to cancel the first half of our season. 

We are still hoping to resume our concerts in January 2021. The latest Government advice (mid-August) is that indoor concerts are now possible with observation of the current provisos of social distancing, etc. Our planned programme for the early part of 2021 follows on the website.
