Most Friday's light lunches are served from 11.30 a.m. in the Church Hall.
The concerts begin at 12.30pm and end by 1.30pm. Admission for all these concerts is £5.00, although on occasion the price has to be increased for a particular concert. You pay at the door and will get a programme of the music, biographical details of the performers and advance notice of future concerts.
Many of our performers are studying or have studied at Chetham’s School of Music, the Royal Northern College of Music or other prestigious UK music institutions. A lot are already established as noted performers, not only in the UK but overseas, and are winners of music prizes, awards and scholarships. A number are from overseas. Quite a few are based in the North West but others travel significant distances to be with us.
The church and its shop/café (at the West end of the church) are open all day, so you are welcome to browse amongst books, gifts and CDs or enjoy light refreshments before or after the concert. In addition, from 11.30am to 12.30pm, soup and sandwiches are available in the Blackburne Hall, just across the car park to the north side of the church.
Although several of our artists return on a regular basis we are always extending the number of musicians who come to perform. If you are interested in offering your services for a concert and have had sound training and performance experience, the Rector, Dr John Findon, would be delighted to hear from you. Please send a short CV and contact details (address, phone and email) to the Parish Office. The email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are able to pay a modest fee to those who perform.
