Concerts and Recitals for 2019
In January and February, the organ bellows were completely re-leathered. This was a major operation and had never been done since the organ was made in 1889 so it was long overdue.
You can help us keep the organ playing by coming to our concerts, or sponsoring a voluntary. We are also looking for more volunteers to help Julia Matthews with the refreshments and Ian Burgess with the screens at the recitals.
Programme for the rest of 2019-
20 July: Guitarist and lutenist Jamie Akers and singer Susana D’Oliviera Tuxera will be performing music by women composers through the ages. Find out more.

About our Recital Programme
Most of our recitals showcase our wonderful Father Willis pipe organ. You can read more about the organ, and we hope you will come to hear it at one of our recitals.
Sometimes, our recitals take the form of a “come and sing”, open to all. A scratch choir rehearsed and performed Handel’s Messiah in March 2012, shown above.
You can always buy tickets on the door at any of our recitals. So please come along, and we promise you a warm welcome!
