It contains the Senior Street Sextet jazz concert (June 24th 7.30pm), a celebration of the sensual and mysterious, secret world of the harpsichord (June 11th 3pm) and a community choir singing Midsummer Melodies (June 22nd 7.30pm). There is a celebration of the dazzling range of keyboards instruments in the church (June 20th 7.30pm) – five in all, including a chamber organ, a Yamaha grand piano, a fortepiano, a chamber organ and a Grade II listed Harrison organ. The medieval mystic, Hildegard of Bingen, will be explored in a one-woman performance by June Boyce-Tillman (June 19th 7.30pm). As part of the Big Green week local storytellers are telling Luscious Stories of Abundance. We are also exploring a new idea – Sounds of Sanctuary (June 24th 10am)– which is a Saturday morning event where people will be able to lie or sit comfortably in the beautiful Lady Chapel.
