Patrick Hawes - composer for His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales and Classic FM composer in Residence - gave an illustrated talk on his most recent composition, The Great War Symphony. Commemorating 100 years since the end of the First World War with an extraordinary symphonic and choral setting of moving poetry, Patrick conducts performances of the Great War Symphony on the stages of London's Royal Albert Hall and New York's Carnegie Hall in October and November 2018.
Thanks to everyone who came to the Quiz night in June. What a fun evening! Much laughter and merriment (and of course, competitiveness) filled the room AND we raised over a thousand pounds for the Church. Sincere thanks to the WHEELHOUSE VETS for their generous sponsorship of the event - such a positive force in the village.
