Raising money for the Church Building Appeal Fund
Come and join us, we are easily accessible via the train, bus routes and NCP car parks are within a few minutes walk. The concerts are diverse, mostly classically, but also jazz and folk. The performers are very talented and, most importantly, enjoy what they do; they engage with the audience and always aim to make their concerts a special event for everyone. It is a great way to spend a Friday lunchtime - among friendly people, enjoying lovely music. Do come along and see for yourself.
Enjoy a coffee/tea before the concert and get to know your fellow concert goers. Turn our lovely Friday lunchtime concerts into one of your regular social engagements.
