Friends of St Mary's Church (FOSM) are hosting their fifth Youth Music Festival in St Mary's Church on Saturday 4th March, starting at 2.30pm, to showcase young local musical talent.
It is an entertaining afternoon in an informal atmosphere and gives young instrumentalists and singers an opportunity to perform for appreciative friends and families.
After the refreshments (tea, squash and homemade cakes), organisers are also hoping to hold a short masterclass with a few of the more advanced performers. Audience members are invited to remain and listen to this as well.
Tickets are priced at £5 for adults and £1 for children, excluding performers, or £10 for a family of two adults and up to three children. These and may be obtained from the HStM School office, Jenny Hardy (Tel: 291173), Tricia Stradling (Tel: 291607) or at the door.
The concert is in aid of Friends of St Mary's, which raises funds for the restoration and essential maintenance work on the church building.
Any young musicians who would like to take part are invited to contact Jenny Hardy.
