We organise meetings, tutorials, workshops and concerts to help composers realise their ideas and get their music heard. We welcome all composers, irrespective of musical genre or style, from beginners to experienced professionals.

Our Patrons

We are proud and delighted to have the distinguished composers Judith Weir CBE and David Matthews as our Patrons. They have already made valuable contributions to LCF.

Their presence contributes to raising LCF’s profile as a vibrant group dedicated to exploring, composing and presenting contemporary music in London under a broad range of styles. We continue to build long-term links with them both and with their music.


 Our next concert is ‘Bach, Bachianas and the LCF’, a piano concert at St. George the Martyr, Southwark on February 17th. Check out our Concerts page for other concerts in 2024


Our next Activity will be a Work in Progress session on Monday 19th February on Zoom. Our next Open House discussion session is on Monday 18th March at New Cut Common room SE1 8LN, and via Zoom. Check out our Activities page for the latest information. 





Come join us for opportunities to have your music played. And to take part in our Open House discussions on various topics, and Work in Progress sessions to showcase what we’ve written.

Also, join us if you want to contribute to our music blog. 


It is with much sadness that we report the death of long-standing member Alan Hilton, who participated in most of our meetings and contributed pieces regularly to our concerts. His widow, Elizabeth, has graciously donated a large sum to the Group, in his memory. The use to be made of this money is to go to the song concert in April (see Concerts)
