On 6th June, the Friends will be celebrating the completion of the renovation of the organ with a concvert recital given by David Goode, who is not only an international recitalist, but also leads the team of teachers that trains young organists who are pupils at Eton College. These boys bring a standard of performance that has to be heard to believed, and from time to time we have had an Eton boy play in a church service.
This will be our unique way of starting the Christmas season, celebrating lots of local talent, including our choirs (adult and junior), handbells, some very talented young musicians and lots more, including mulled wine and mince pies at the interval to give additional cheer!
