“Jigsaw”

On Saturday, 20th August 2022 we have the Jigsaw Choir visiting our church. They are from Shrewsbury and are doing a short ‘tour’ of the North East.
They have offered to do a concert for us in church to raise funds for our beautiful building.
They are a mixed voice adult choir and sing a mixture of sacred and secular music. They perform concerts regularly in the south of England but I think this is their first visit to this area.
The cost of a ticket will be £5.00.
Please try to come to this Summer Concert; bring friends and family and, apart from welcoming this choir, raise some funds as well.
The concert will start at 7.30pm.
