Concerts at the Crossroads

Beulah has a long musical tradition and has hosted many concerts over the years.

However, since 2008 we have put together a regular programme of classical lunchtime recitals which take place on the last Wednesday of the month. The concerts last approximately fifty minutes and the  programme is based on the principle of Classic FM meets Radio 3.

We frequently have RWCMD students to perform for us, and with some of them we have been able to follow their progress over their period of study. Other artists include Welsh musicians or those musicians who have made their home in Wales.

We also arrange the occasional evening concert, followed by a buffet.


2023 Lunchtime Concerts

The concerts for the next season are now prepared and about to start again in September.
Please note the earlier starting time - it is now 1pm and not 1.05pm as before.
We are also - reluctantly - charging 8 a ticket rather than the previous 5.
Running costs have gone up and we want to remain self- funding as far as is possible.
Please bring correct money if you can.

Sadly, over the summer months, two of the founder members of the organizing group for the Beulah concerts have passed away, Marg Jones and Cathryn Hales.

They made a great contribution for which we are all indebted and remember them with gratitude.
