News about Ripon Concerts 2020/21

Due to Covid 19, we have had to cancel the first three concerts of the 2020/21 series, due to take place in October, November and December. Ripon Concerts is very much hoping that the concerts arranged for 11 January (with Chagall Piano Quartet), 8 February (Lotte Betts-Dean - mezzo and Joseph Havlat -piano) and 6 March (Marlborough Piano Quartet) will go ahead, provided we can be sure that it will be safe for our audiences, artists and venue staff. We expect to make a final decision in November.

About Ripon Concerts

Ripon Concerts was founded in 1993 as the Cathedral Concert Society and is a Registered Charity. The Society:

In normal times the six concerts in our season give the opportunity for members and ticket buyers to experience high quality live chamber music. For some people, this is a first-time experience and even seasoned concert goers enjoy hearing unfamiliar repertoire and new compositions. We not only engage experienced and acclaimed musicians but also encourage local and younger performers. Young people attend concerts at heavily discounted prices and children of school age attend free of charge.


Members are constitutionally important to maintain our charity status, and financially to enable the continuing success of our concerts. Even in these unprecedented and difficult times Members are invited to maintain their support at a nominal rate in order to fund fixed costs. In the hope that some concerts will be possible in the New Year, members will receive a discount on subscriptions and two free guest tickets per concert.

Single membership£10 per head
Joint with partner£18 joint

If you would prefer to pay by cheque or by bank transfer, please download the subscription Form.

Make a Donation

We ask members to be generous once again by making donations to fund concert and development costs for the future. We realise that this is a big ask in such uncertain times but are optimistic that we will get going again and be able to enjoy some wonderful music.
