Village hall concerts
Regular high quality concerts take place in the hall, usually on Saturday evenings. We like to feature a range of musical styles, such as folk, blues, singer-songwriters, jazz, Americana/ alt.country, etc. (The church also sometimes hosts classical music events or visiting choirs.)
There is a licensed bar at all village hall events.

NEXT EVENT – Saturday 25 March, 8pm (doors 7.30pm)
Holy Moly & The Crackers
Seven-piece ‘gypsy folk/rock’ band from the UK, influenced by an eclectic mix of folk and popular music, combining to produce a mix of rock, pop, folk, blues, balkan, klezmer, ska, reggae, etc. Founder members Conrad Bird, Ruth Patterson and ‘Squeezebox’ Rosie lead the band with compelling charismatic style. They are one of hardest working bands on the circuit with a growing and loyal fan base: over the last two years they have toured extensively, making impressive debuts in France, Germany and Holland. Their main-stage festival appearances include Glastonbury, Hop Farm, Cornbury, Secret Garden Party and Larmer Tree.
“This wild and carnivalesque seven-piece from the Bohemian Quarter of Newcastle blurs the boundaries of folk, gypsy and rock music with its truly terrific sound. Mixing powerhouse story-songs with foot-stomping rhythms this band has more than a touch of magic to it.”
