St Mary’s Church within Portchester Castle has wonderful acoustics and is widely known for its concerts and lunchtime recitals.

Lunchtime recitals, which are free, take place on Thursdays at 1pm in the summer and are organised by The Director of Music, David Cain. Please see below for this year’s schedule.

Concerts are organised by Michael Moore and range from secular and choral to jazz and The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines. There are normally 4 or 5 each year. They are always on Fridays and start at 7.30pm sharp. There is an interval where wine and soft drinks are available – these are free, but donations are always welcome as the evenings are designed to raise money for charity with a contribution to the church.
