Event: Awayday Summer 2016
Sunday 10th July 2016 at 7:30pm, Faversham, Kent
If you live in the Faversham area - or happen to be passing on the day - we would be delighted if you would come along to our evening concert, which is the key component of our annual Awayday programme. Those familiar with Faversham will probably be aware that St Mary of Charity is the largest and oldest Parish Church in the whole of Kent.
Admission to the concert will be free and there will be a retiring collection in support of the church's coninuous programme of restoration and improvement. The particular project that the collection will support is the proposed new sound system.
Our programme will be the same as for our Summer Concert 2 weeks earlier in North Harrow and will include: Songs of the Fleet by Stanford; Five Mystical Songs by Vaughan Williams; O sacrum convivium by Thomas Tallis and The Sprig of Thyme by John Rutter.
