At 7.30 on Saturday, October 27, the Gamay Ensemble will hold a concert at St Etheldreda’s Church.

The ensemble, of five wind instruments and a piano, is formed of six local musicians who will play a range of works including music by Beethoven, a wild Hornpipe by Patterson, and offerings by Mendelssohn, and Debussy.

Entrance to the concert is free, but a collection will be taken so that people can donate to the West End Project.

This aims to add facilities such as a meeting room and toilets to the west end of this historic church, parts of which have stood since the 13th Century.

“These improvements will bring this lovely and important historic building and facility for the local community up to 21st century standards,” said organiser Chris Goward.

At their last concert, £900 was raised towards the modernisation efforts.

Refreshments will be offered in the interval and the concert will finish around 9pm.
