“Poetry and Music

Our next concert on Saturday July 11th, 2015 will be at a new venue for us, St Barnabas Chuch, Perth Road (off Oakhill Road), Beckenham BR3 6PP.

There will be a delightful and varied programme of madrigals and part songs, and a performance of Britten's Hymn to St Cecilia.

Sadly, this will be the last concert to be conducted by our current musical director, Tom Bullard, We do hope that our many old and new friends will come along to give Tom a good send off!
