The Treasury Music Society holds a regular series of lunchtime recitals in the Churchill Room at 100 Parliament Street. The next one, on Wednesday 7 February, is timed to coincide with LGBT History Month. The recital features musicians from the London Gay Symphony Orchestra – the oldest LGBT orchestra in the UK and one of only a handful in the world.
Non pass-holders should ideally arrange to be signed in by a colleague in the building. However there may also be room for a small number of people on the guest list – if you would like to try that option please email Music.Society@obr.gsi.gov.uk and they will do their best to squeeze you in.
