2015 Christmas Fair

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.

Music for an Autumn Afternoon

St Barnabas Church, Sunday 11th October at 4pm

Julia White oboe  *  Matthew Sear guitar  *  Mayda Narvey cello

‘I am Music, who in sweet accents can calm each troubled heart, and now with noble anger, now with love, can kindle the most frigid minds’

So wrote Alessandro Striggio in his libretto to Monteverdi’s Orfeo, the Prologue of which begins this concert. Spanish and Latin American music, including Piazzolla’s stirring Libertango and folk songs are juxtaposed with Bach’s sublime Adagio from the Concerto for Oboe and Violin and other music of the 17th and 18th centuries. Poet Peter Brennan reads from his own work and that of other poets who contemplate the guises in which music calls out to all of us.

The concert will be followed by a glass of wine. Admission at the door £10, concessions £8.
