Live Concerts in 2021

Live concerts are back! We are delighted to announce our first live concert of this year, which takes place on Saturday May 29th at 7pm. Please note that present rules allow for a maximum audience of 35, which is 50% of capacity. Our unique concerts are a major source of funding for Maxability’s charitable work, and we hope you will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to hear some of the very best music ever composed, played live by exceptional musicians in a highly convivial atmosphere.

Our concerts take place on Saturday evenings at 7pm near Arnos Grove, North London (N14). Full booking instructions are below. We look forward to seeing you there.
