Embassy and Cultural Institute Series

Launched in 2014, St Martin’s Embassy and Cultural Institute Series brings the finest international talent to this iconic church on Trafalgar Square.

St Martin’s Embassy and Cultural Institute Series exists to create a platform for international artists in the cultural heart of London, open to the public and free for all to attend, that will increase cross-cultural appreciation and understanding, through the medium of music, such that any tensions in international relations can draw on experience and enjoyment of distinctive and stylish presentations of diverse authentic traditions.

Taking place as a lunchtime concert, St Martin’s Embassy and Cultural Institute Series runs once a month (on every third Tuesday), and is open to international performers recommended by their embassy, high commission, mission or cultural institute in the United Kingdom.

Embassy Series concerts are not restricted to classical repertoire and can feature all kinds of world music, jazz, popular, contemporary and folk.

Performances are free to attend; however a donation of £3.50 from audience members is suggested, to help keep the series running.
