ST. ANDREW’S EVENING CONCERTS
The 2018 programme of Evening Concerts at St. Andrew’s Church promises to provide a rare musical treat for those fortunate enough to attend. Many of these young internationally acclaimed musicians studied at the Purcell School of Music and give freely of their time to raise funds for Holt Church and FALCON, a local charity founded by Phil Barrett, one of their former teachers who lives locally and arranges these popular and now, well established concerts.
Next FALCON concert: Saturday 7th July at 6.30 pm
