Pilton – 2nd Wednesday of the month 6.00pm in the Parish Church.

Dinder – 4th Wednesday of the month 6.00pm in the Church.

As the weather gets colder we will probably decamp to a warmer location!!

Friday Night is Music Night!

THE FRIENDS OF ST MARY’S, CROSCOMBE
Friday Night is Music Night!

28th July in the Church Room, starting at 7.30pm.

Do come and join a small group who meet to listen to a programme of recorded classical music chosen by Terry McCarthy.  The music is varied and the whole evening is a very relaxed affair; you really do not need to be a music expert. This time it is Mozart’s Rondos for Piano and Orchestra and Beethoven’s 5th Piano Concerto. Programme notes are supplied.

The programme lasts for about an hour and we have time then for  tea/coffee or a glass of wine – and a chat!  New ‘listeners’ will be made very welcome. Entrance fee £3 – free for Friends of St Mary’s
