    The management team at  The Sussex Symphony Orchestra have been closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation. Government advice is to implement social distancing to minimise non-essential social contact and reduce the risk of rapidly spreading the virus as well as self-isolation those who are vulnerable or believe they have been exposed. The health of our members and audience are the utmost priority for us and therefore we reluctantly have to postpone the May concert..

    For those who have already purchased tickets, we will be refunding these over the next 24 hours.

    This decision was taken earlier today and subsequently, we have learned that the Brighton Fringe itself is also being postponed. Their announcement is below:


  • Tchaikovsky

    A Celebration of Tchaikovsky

    Due to the current Coronavirus situation, this concert has been postponed. We will announce new date in due course.
