Hoylake Chamber Concert Society

Founded in 1926, Hoylake Chamber Concert Society has promoted a winter series of concerts every year since, except during World War II & the Pandemic Year.


2022 - 23

95th season featuring international artists

Our 95th Season 2022-23

As we prepare for our first full season of six concerts with live audience since the start of the pandemic, we are very much looking forward to welcoming back old friends and making new ones. Since 1926, broken only by world war and pandemic, the Society has presented a series of chamber concerts which have, for many, become unmissable events! This has, of course, become more difficult recently as artists must first obtain the necessary visas. However we believe we have succeeded in bringing distinction from abroad and are happy that our concerts in the coming season do offer variety and high calibre of performers, as well as representing chamber music in its various aspects, string quartet, piano trio, solo piano, and so forth. Our programmes are well balanced, and we believe they offer some of the most wonderful music the genre can offer, as well as the occasional unfamiliar work which we hope will arouse and then pleasantly satisfy your curiosity! We invite you to take a close look at the individual concert pages to see exactly what is on offer.

Our venue, St Hildeburgh’s Church on Stanley Road, Hoylake, is a lovely building with fine acoustics and comfortable seating, and you may be assured of a warm welcome and a safe environment. Parking is easy and free, and for rail passengers, the church is but a few minutes walk from Hoylake Merseyrail station.

To tempt you further, we are pleased to reveal that we have kept both the series subscription and the individual ticket price at pre-pandemic levels, the former at £75 and the latter at £16. A subscription gives admission to all six concerts, which offers a considerable saving over what we think is a good-value ticket price.

We look forward to seeing you and hope and believe you will greatly enjoy the wonderful performances which we are so keenly anticipating!
