The Sunday Concerts trace their history back to 1878 when the People's Concert Society was formed for the purpose of 'increasing the popularity of good music by means of affordable concerts'. The South Place Ethical Society acquired the concert series and, in 1929, had Conway Hall purpose built for them and, with the exception of the war years, the concerts seasons have continued ever since.
