About us

The Nicholas Yonge Society is one of the finest mainstream classical music societies in the South-East of England. The exceptional quality of its concerts and their excellent value for money, attracts members from far and wide. Over a quarter of the members come from places outside Lewes, such as Horsham, Worthing, Eastbourne and Hailsham. The Society favours trios, quartets and small ensembles, with an occasional piano soloist or singer, many of them artists of international fame. It also provides a platform for young professional musicians and it is gratifying that so many of these have gone on to successful national and international careers. For a selection of former artists, click on ‘Past artists’.  

Our membership is now £50 for five concerts, which you will surely agree still remains excellent value. Many thanks meanwhile to those of you who add donations to your subscriptions and to those who purchase membership even though they know they cannot attend all the concerts (although don’t forget that membership cards are transferable).

You can join us by downloading this form.

Visit the Tickets page on this website for information on purchasing tickets for specific concerts.

As always, we are very grateful to our sponsors Harvey and Son and to the many who help us out on concert days.

The concerts are held at the Sussex Downs College, Mountfield Road, Lewes BN7 2XH, normally on the fourth Friday of October, November, January, February and March starting at 7.45 pm. Doors open usually at 7.15 pm. Click here for for more information on the venue.

Our last concert ....

"This concert was a master-class in listening. Just be thankful .... that we can hear interpretations of such mastery and insight."
