Hymns and Pimms with Beer and Cheer!

This was an inspiring evening of joyful singing, with refreshments available to quench our thirst. Hymns ranged from the traditional to more recent, and there were some interesting twists to challenge our vocal chords and our perspective.

Our heartfelt thanks to the Reverend John Chandler who prepared the programme, led the singing and played keyboard/church organ; and to all who helped to organise the event or came along to support it.

A Joyful Fundraising Concert

A joyful concert was held at St. Michael’s on Saturday 25th March. Organised by the Myland Singers, the event was held in aid of Brain Tumour Research UK and the Church Restoration Appeal. The Myland Singers were joined by friends including Quattro Amici (a wonderful quartet of classical vocalists) as well as several talented pianists, all of whom delighted us with a mix of music and song.

An Entertaining Evening

All creatures great and small were celebrated at St. Michael's recently, and not just at our Pets' Service.

Saturday 23rd July saw some of our animal friends paraded via music and comedy as Paul Towns and John Chatfeild-Roberts, accompanied by Jenny Walker on piano, delighted us with an evening of entertainment from the work of Flanders and Swann (and others). A horse, an elephant, mad dogs, spiders and even a wild boar (well, sort of) all had their time in the limelight, as did the most famous of all - the hippopotamus!

We were also treated to Jenny's own beautiful award winning composition 'The Stream': truly enchanting!

Puccini, Bizet, Rossini, Cole Porter, Schonberg, Lloyd-Webber & Rice, Abba & more: a wonderful concert to celebrate the early days of autumn.
