Thursday lunchtime free live concerts made a welcome comeback for the first time since March 2020!

Assistant Director of Music Tim Harper (pictured) delighted the audience with a piano recital to kick off the series.

Our Interim Director of Music and world class organist Peter Wright gave an organ recital last week, as featured on BBC Radio York!

Other series highlights include a performance by the world famous Black Dyke Band’s Principal Trombonist, Dr Brett Baker and the Northumrian duo The Brothers Gillespie. An on-line concert by Tim Harper can also be accessed via our Facebook page and YouTube channel

Concerts are in the nave, to maintain social distancing (no recording or streaming.) Hot drinks and packaged biscuits will be served from 12.30pm (the audience is welcome to bring in cold sandwiches.) The concerts begin at 1pm.
