Please share your music, songs, stories and dance in this Great Get Together. Don’t be shy. We just want to have a great night and are not looking for perfection (apart from the Choir!!). BUT……. even if you don’t want to perform this time, come and enjoy some great entertainment.

The church is a Grade II listed building with an interesting and unusual history having been built originally as an Anglican church. The pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows in the church were designed mainly by Edward Burne-Jones with contributions from Ford Madox Brown and William Morris, and constitute one of the best collections of stained-glass from the William Morris Company in the North of England
