Please also note that there will be two further concerts in the summer series:
To Warm Each Troubled Heart (Sunday 10th July, 6pm)
Oboist Julia White, cellist Mayda Narvey and guitarist Matthew Sear play an intimate and beguiling programme of Baroque and Spanish music with readings by Darris Golinski reflecting on the power of music to heal and restore. Tickets are £10 (£8 concessions / £5 for under 16s).
Jazz for a Summer Evening (Friday 5th August, 7.30pm)
Soprano Lene Sahlhodt and jazz pianist Chad Lelong join cellist Mayda Narvey in a summer cabaret of jazz, both standard and rather off the beaten track. With readings by Jazz FM presenter / performer, Bob Sinfield. Tickets are £10 (£8 concessions / £5 for under 16s).
Join us on Thursday 26th May (7.30pm) as violinist Miriam Kramer, Cellist Mayda Narvey and pianist Charis Hanning explore the work of women composers from the 12th Century mystic Hildegard von Bingen to contemporary American composer Deborah Netanel.
The evening also includes readings by women writers throughout the ages.
Tickets are available on the door at £10 (£8 for seniors, £5 for under 16s). All profits will be donated to Ibba Girls’ School.
“de Deney’s latest performance combines poetry and virtuoso storytelling to create a poignant revisiting of the themes of war, love and loss.”
Join us at St Barnabas at 7.30pm on Saturday 30th January to watch ‘Between The Lines’, a passionate one man play about the war to end all wars written and performed by Simon de Deney (50mins).
A keeper of the graves in an old war cemetery is compelled to unravel a 100 year mystery. The play follows an underage soldier’s journey through the First World War as he struggles to deal with the impact of his choices on the people he loves most and his own sense of betrayal.
Tickets are available to purchase on the door for £10 (concessions available).
We sincerely hope that you can join us at this year’s Christmas Fair. There will be the usual range of stalls and good food at reasonable prices, and the chance for children to meet Father Christmas. This year we are particularly excited that the young magician, Eddie Farmer, will be joining us and performing live magic throughout the fair!
It’s Christmas Fair time again! As with last year, profits will be going into our fundraising appeal coffers to improve our church buildings. This year we have the excitement of a young MAGICIAN, who will be performing at intervals throughout the event, plus, as always, delicious lunches provided by Ali / Sarah and the team.
