In the centre of the vibrant village of Chalfont St. Giles is the beautiful Church. It dates from about 1150 and houses wall paintings from the early 14th century, 16th century brasses, a locally made clock and much more. It's a place of worship and community - a place for weddings, baptisms and contemplation.
The Friends help to support the preservation of the fabric of the church, its art and ornaments, environs and heritage.
In the hope that it will be safe to hold an event in October and we can all be together again, Opera Anywhere is kindly holding the evening of Saturday 23 October for a performance of The Mikado in the church.
The Mikado is one of the most famous and best-loved of Gilbert and Sullivan‘s operettas. Nanki-Poo loves Yum-Yum but she’s betrothed to Ko-Ko, the new Lord High Executioner. When the Mikado orders a beheading, Nanki-Poo and Ko-Ko try to come to an arrangement that doesn’t involve anyone losing their head!
Ticket sales will be announced in due course if guidance permits us to confirm the performance, but SAVE THE DATE for now.
A wonderful small team of people keep the churchyard in good condition and looking beautiful. If you think you might be able to offer help with mowing or other gardening jobs we would be grateful for your time and support. The dates for working parties are below. If you may be able to offer help on one or more of these occasions please use the Contact Us form at the bottom of this page and we will get back to you swiftly. Thank you!
