Attend a free rush hour concert at St John's Waterloo

Anyone who says that you can only have a good time in London if you have a lot of money just isn't trying hard enough, as your author was reminded when he met up with Jane last Thursday for a free concert with the Southbank Sinfonia at St John's Waterloo. Free wine was provided, as the Sinfonia were joined by Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School for Mahler's Symphony No. 4, and an hour later the audience were asked to donate only whatever they thought it was worth.

Tonight, the weekly series continues with a concert called 'Dancing Rhythms', at which we can expect Piazzolla’s Argentinian Tangazo and Romero's Fuga con Pajarillo followed by Beethoven Symphony No.7, which we are told was described by Wagner as “the apotheosis of the dance”. Once again it's free, you don't need a ticket and it only takes as much time as the delayed 17:58 service to Windsor & Eton Riverside.
