Dear Bach to Baby Fans

As you have probably seen, London is going into Tier 4 starting 20 December.

With these new guidelines, all our remaining concerts for 2020 are cancelled. If you hold tickets to these concerts, we will automatically provide a refund - there is no need to email us. The refunds may take up to 10 days to show in your account.

In the meantime, if you'd like to join us online for some festive cheer, check out our Christmas at the Ballet online, on demand, featuring the effervescent Keziah Thomas on concert harp.

We're very sad that we won't be able to celebrate this festive Season with you and your family, but here's to a brighter 2021 when we will enjoy the thrill of live music in person again!

You can also enjoy our interactive online concerts on RePlay.

Limited Parking at Church. Please see alternate parking information below!

About the concerts

Bach to Baby is the critically acclaimed classical concert series for babies, toddlers and their carers. Tots dance, roam about and revel in the wonder of live music, while you take a moment out of your busy day to hear top notch performances by outstanding musicians, with your young babes in tow.

Doors open 15 mins prior to the concert, giving you time to ditch the buggy, grab a coffee, and catch up with friends before the performance.

About the venue

Guildford United Reformed Church has been meeting at various buildings around Guildford since the 17th century. The church moved to its current location on the road out of town in 1965 when the architects Barber, Bundy & Greenfield designed this startlingly modern octagonal building to replace the former premises in the town centre. The church is light and spacious, beautifully lit through the windows high above in the clerestory, and is home to an impressive church organ that is said to be one of the finest in southern England. Music is at the heart of the community life of the church, and the excellent acoustics create the perfect spot in which to enjoy one of the frequent concerts that take place there. Bach to Baby is delighted to now be part of this thriving musical scene!
