Spring 2016 Lunchtime concerts

Tuesdays Till Two returns on 12th April with the first in a season of  lunchtime concerts and recitals. As usual, admission to our lunchtime events is free, but we would appreciate a donation of £4 (or more!) to help us cover our costs. Our café will be open before the concerts from noon, serving hot and cold drinks and a variety of home made cakes, scones, and other treats, and once again all profits will go to The Green Backyard.

Two of the planned concerts were organ recitals. Unfortunately, on 20th March the organ at St John’s was seriously damaged when the organ blower motor overheated, and smoke entered the pipework of the organ. As it will not become clear how serious the damage to the organ is until after we have to print posters and flyers for our May/June concerts we have now decided to cancel these organ recitals. We are pleased to report that we have managed to arrange a replacement concert for 31st May.
