More about this event

Please note that for Michaelmas Term 2021 our Lunchtime Concert Series is open only to current LSE students and staff to attend and concerts will be ticketed. For information on how to request a ticket, please click on the red 'How can I attend?' box.

Just economics and politics? Think again. While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects.
