Lunchtime Live!

All Saints' is host to Northampton's only regular lunchtime recital series. In recent years, the series has been expanded to include a diverse range of musicians beyond that of organ music, such as singers, chamber musicians and pianists.

The series has become renowned in Northamptonshire and beyond for attracting musicians of the highest calibre to perform vocally, on various wind and string instruments, and on either the piano, the Walker Gallery Organ, the Hill & Son and Norman & Beard Chancel Organ, and our Walker Chapel Organ.

Nowhere in Europe or indeed the world have I played in a building that has better acoustics. They are absolutely perfect!
— Sir Yehudi Menhuin

No booking is required to attend a recital, and there is no ticket charge. At the end of a recital, a collection is taken for our music programme. Lunchtime Live! recitals are usually held on the first Thursday of each month at 1:10pm, excepting only January and August.

Our bistro is open for lunches and light refreshments before, during, of after all our lunchtime recitals!


The Lunchtime Live! series lineup has now been confirmed for the first half of 2024. With performances by our very own Director of Music, Jem Lowther and Assistant Organist, Laurence Caldecote, along with some special guests, we have a very exciting 6 months ahead.

Our next Lunchtime Live! will feature Jem Lowther and Lufuno Ndou who will perform a recital as mezzo-soprano accompanied by piano.
