1920s Film Night: Friday 21st October, 7.30pm

Experience a night at the movies 1920s-style at this screening of a silent film with organ accompaniment.

St Mary’s is thrilled to welcome David Gibbs, Director of Music at Kimbolton School, to improvise an organ soundtrack to the 1925 silent film The Phantom of the Opera.

“The Phantom of the Opera is terrific: unsettling, beautifully shot and imbued with a dense and shadowy Gothic atmosphere.” PopMatters

To complete the cinema experience, we will be serving popcorn and drinks to enjoy during the film. Please allow enough time to purchase these from the Transept before the film begins at 7.30pm.

Admission is free, there are no tickets – so do arrive early if you want to secure a good seat.

There will be a retiring collection in aid of our Charity of the Year, Emmaus Hertfordshire.

Song Recital: Sunday 3rd July, 3.00pm

Please join us at 3.00pm this Sunday for a very special song recital given by Rosanna Milner (soprano) and Simon Pusey (piano).

Rosanna is a choral scholar at Queen’s College, Oxford where she is reading Music. The programme will include songs by Bach, Hugo Wolf, Rebecca Clarke, Cole Porter and more.

Do invite your family, friends and neighbours to join us. Admission is free and there will be a retiring collection for our fundraising efforts for Emmaus Hertfordshire, working with homeless people.

And then why not make it a double bill and join us at 6.30 pm for our first Choral Evensong sung by our choir in over two years? It will be a lovely way to round off the day and all are welcome.
