With its spacious interior, generous seating capacity and excellent acoustics, St Peter’s is an ideal venue for concerts.

These include the church’s own promotions as well as those of visiting organisations.

We offer a popular, informal summer series of lunchtime concerts on the first Thursday of each month from April to October.

Light lunches are available from noon, and the concerts start at 12.30pm. Admission is free, but donations are very much appreciated.

The annual Flower Festival in August customarily includes a lighter concert on the Saturday evening, which is always a lively social event with wine and other refreshments on offer before the concert and during the interval.

Visiting organisations

St Peter’s is in demand for externally promoted concerts, which include performances by renowned local choirs and bands, as well as regular events by  the Colchester Chamber Choir, one of East Anglia’s finest musical organisations.

Organ recitals are also given from time to time. Please see the schedule below for a full list of what is planned for 2023
