First class classical music at an affordable price

In 2002 a group of friends, later to become Rook Lane Coffee Concerts, mounted its first tentative event at the newly re-built Rook Lane Chapel. Despite our experimental and distinctive take on creating an informal classical atmosphere, a loyal following developed and a reserve fund grew enabling us to host ever better professional musicians.

In 2011 Frome Concerts Groups was formally constituted to carry forward the work, and pleasure, of providing around seven annual classical events. We continue in the spirit of providing quality concerts that aim to bring the delight of classical music to all audiences.

Frome Concerts Group is a collective of volunteering individuals, each with a passion for music and furthering local culture. Our concert programme runs entirely from funds earned via our events, we do not receive any external financial support. Our subscription series ticketing allows us to secure attendance, and with it the means to pursue adventurous programming that has come to be the group’s trademark. We actively seek talented musicians who are at ease with an enthusiastic audience and intimate concert atmosphere, and who support our continued aim of presenting classical music of the highest calibre.


“The joy of subscribing to the concert series is – apart from going to some really fabulous performances – that I also go to concerts I wouldn’t normally choose to attend and to my amazement I have enjoyed every one – it’s fantastic”
“I was thrilled to see so many people turning up to my recital – all so enthusiastic and appreciative. I love Rook Lane Chapel” – Alexandra Dariescu, pianist
“Rook Lane Chapel is perfect for chamber music – a clean and warm sound and a welcoming friendly atmosphere” – David Owen Norris, pianist
