We will be starting the process of getting together the programme of lunchtime concerts
for the 2016 season, after Easter this year. These popular monthly events provide
an opportunity for groups of local singers or instrumentalists, who may not always have
many opportunities to perform, to give a 45 minutes concert.
If you would like to suggest someone or be considered yourself,
please contact as soon as possible. By phone:  Joy Bounds on 01473 250400
