The Sussex String Quartet was formed in 1986 by Sussex violinist Martin Palmer. The quartet comprises four accomplished professional musicians who have been members of or have worked regularly with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Hallé, the Orchestra of English National Ballet, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra and other notable ensembles as well as shows in London's West End such as Les Misérables, Phantom of the Opera, Lion King and Mike Batt's The Hunting of the Snark.

Over the years we have performed at a great number of concerts and recitals, and events ranging from major corporate functions to intimate private dinner parties. Our music has enhanced the romantic atmosphere at many a wedding. We have recorded music for television commercials, for Universal Music and can be heard on film soundtracks of Five Seconds to Spare and A Dangerous Game.

Although based in Sussex, we regularly work in London, the Home Counties and travel the length and breadth of the country.
