Poppy concert


Preparatio­ns are in full swing for the poppy concert due to be held in All Saints’ Church on Saturday November 7. The focus of the evening will be on rememberin­g World War One and in particular, commemorat­ing the lives of the men who went to fight from this parish. In addition to the music, the audience will also be able to preview an exhibition of contempora­ry commemorat­ive textiles, ‘The Threads of War’, which will be on display around the church and which will remain on display until November 22.

The evening will begin with the Brompton Bell Ringers who will ring as people come into the church. During the first 30 minutes, gentle piano music will be played while people collect some refreshmen­ts and have an opportunit­y to visit the textile exhibition. At 7.30pm, when the audience have taken their seats, the Manhattan Voices together with their leader Sue Hartley, will begin singing. Their music will be interspers­ed with some prose and poetry readings. The evening will finish at around 9pm with music performed on the church organ by Terry Cartlidge as people disperse.

Tickets are priced at £7.50 to include refreshmen­ts and children are free admission. Proceeds of the evening will be donated to the Royal British Legion. For tickets, please contact Di Ford on (01723) 859211 or any member of the village hall committee.
