Sandbach Concert Series
Sandbach Concert Series is a non-profit Arts organization run entirely by volunteers. With 8 concerts a year at St Mary’s Hall, a deliberately early start and finish time to our concerts, as well as reasonable ticket prices its aim is to encourage more families to attend classical music concerts. The structure of the concerts; a half hour spotlight concert by young musicians, followed by a half hour interval with an art exhibition, and then a one hour concert by the main artist is unique in the UK.

Each 1 hour concert by national and internationally known musicians is preceded by a 30 minute Spotlight Concert celebrating the talent of our community and young local musicians.
Our Aims are:
- To arrange concerts of different types of music.
- To provide opportunities and experience for young musicians
- To allow young musicians to listen to experienced musicians in their fields.
As well having reasonable ticket prices, we have an earlier start and finish time than traditional concerts so that we can encourage more families and our younger citizens to experience good quality live music.
We have a 30 minute interval between the Spotlight concert and the main concert,to give an opportunity for concert goers to view an exhibition by local artists which is on display as well enjoying drinks and a raffle with money raised by the raffle going to local good causes.
The Sandbach Concert Series is a great way to listen to some good music, support the young people of the town as well as being a regular place to meet on the Sandbach social calendar.
