Notices of Week of 31 March 2022

Published by John Housley on

Happens on Friday Evening!

If you haven’t booked your tickets they are still available on-line here: Book Your Tickets or you you can pay on the door. There is an amazing and varied programme of local and not so local musicians. This is not a concert to miss and of course a great cause too.

And, if you can’t make this concert or even if you can don’t forget there is an opportunity to hear An English Passion at the Cathedral 3 April.

And a Fiddle Fingers concert happens Saturday morning at 11.00 am. Come and support Ripon’s youth string orchestra at their end of term concert for the Ukraine. All proceeds will be added to the Friday night’s donations, and will go to the Disaster Relief Fund. Fiddle Fingers Concert.pdf 

An ideal event if you prefer a short, daytime concert!

Finally, we had great news about last weeks Christian Aid concert for the same cause which raised over £900 which of course attracts the match funding. Thank you for your support.
