Since 2003 Frome Concerts Group (formerly Rook Lane Coffee Concerts) has been bringing a lively programme of classical music events to Frome.
We not only bring a broad selection of musicians – many of international renown – we offer our diverse audience, new and old, an opportunity to experience classical music in a relaxed and contemporary way.
We arrange two concert series each year. Coffee concerts take place on a Sunday morning during January, February and March. Tea concerts are held on a Sunday afternoon in the Autumn. Three varied concerts together with a Special full concert make up a series.
The performers we host, and the variety of repertoire those performers bring, are supported by a unique music venue, Rook Lane Chapel. The chapel’s sensitively restored interior offers excellent acoustics, a welcoming environment, and provides the backdrop for all of our concerts.
Tickets are available on a subscription basis, and single tickets may be bought for both concert series. Historically we encourage our audience members to arrive early, relax in the cafe area and enjoy a complimentary coffee (or tea) and biscuits. However, please be aware that this coming Coffee Concert series we will NOT be serving refreshments before concerts or in the interval of the special concert due to Covid implications. We apologise for this and hopefully we will be able to resume serving refreshments for the Tea Concerts later in the year. If in the interim circumstances allow we will resume serving refreshments.
