Concerts and Heritage

On the second Friday of each month there will be a lunchtime concert in St Johns 

On 8th July we enjoyed hearing some of the young prize winners from this year's Taunton Festival of the Arts competitions. An audience of nearly sixty gave rapt attention to four of this year’s leading solo singers and their accompanists with a varied repertoire from Strawberry Fair to Sondheim.
The collection of £195 will be shared between the church and the Festival funds.

Over the summer from 9th July the church will host coffee mornings from 10am to 1pm with second hand books and a tombola. Please drop in for a rest and some company!

Our next Friday lunchtime concert will feature Arquebus, a Somerset folk trio, on 12th August. 

On the afternoon of Sunday 14th we will enjoy an afternoon concert from local tenor Gregory Steward and his sister Ellen with a variety of songs from the shows. Tickets are £10, available from the church or by email through this site.
