St Giles' Day will be celebrated on the 8th of September and this evensong will contain some classic, lively and fun music to conclude our celebrations. Due to the end of the summer holidays / start of the school year it can be a tricky date for people to commit to - but please do join us if you can.
Please note the slightly earlier rehearsal time - there will be quite a bit to get through on the day. As usual, there will be plenty of refreshment breaks and the service itself will last around 40 minutes. Music and recordings can be sent electronically in advance and hard copies will be available on the day. There's no pressure to - but you are very welcome to attend choir rehearsals on Sunday 1st September at 12pm and Friday 6th of September at 7.15pm where we will practising for this and other services.
