Each concert will take place on the third Saturday of the month from April to September at 11 am following the regular jigsaw and book exchange, with drinks and cakes, which starts at 10 am.
The concert programme offers a variety of music from classical to folk music, songs from the musicals and some poetry, prose and verse:

  • 20 April: Alexandra Sasha Bryant, a local teacher and performer, and her friends are coming together to share their talents. They include her group singing class, folk duo Laura Huston and Ben MacDiarmid, and a children’s band led by Amir Jamal.
  • 18 May: Serendipity return after the success of their concert last year. Expect an eclectic mix of vocal music ranging from Renaissance polyphony to Abba, Schubert to the Beatles and lots in between – something for everyone.
  • 15 June: Aeolus Winds is a wind quintet formed in 2021 from a group of like-minded friends.
  • 20 July: Cawston Community Choir: everyone is welcome to join our choir where we sing a wide variety of music. Expect to hear us sing songs from the musicals, folk songs, sea shanties, popular songs and lots more.
  • 17 August: Songs for Summer – Joss Cooper and Andrew Mildinhall, well-known Cawston-based musicians, will entertain with a wide range of songs in a variety of styles.
  • 21 September: Verse & Worse – last year’s presentation of poetry, prose and music proved popular so a welcome return of something similar. Expect to be moved and amused in equal measure.
