You are warmly invited to these upcoming events:
SATURDAY 10 JULY 3-4 pm
Songhaven are presenting a summer concert of songs from stage and screen, singing in the Gardens close to the Handel Street entrance. Songhaven were performing regularly in Lumen Church until Covid struck so you may know them – professional classically-trained artists. Come to the Gardens to welcome them back – sit on the grass and enjoy. We are using some Friends funds to sponsor this concert, because it’s so important to help the arts to recover.
And if you live close to the Gardens and have some folding chairs that we could borrow for the afternoon, please let us know (reply to firstname.lastname@example.org). We are expecting most people to sit on the grass but it would be good to have some socially-distanced seating for people who need it. If you can help, please bring chairs to the Chapel of Rest at 2 pm so we can arrange the seating before the performance starts.
And there’s more…. MONDAY 26 JULY – FRIDAY 30 JULY
We’re delighted to tell you that Shakespeare’s Wanderers are returning to St. George’s Gardens next month with their 1920s production of Twelfth Night. You may remember that they brought Much Ado About Nothing to the Gardens in 2019, very successfully. You can learn more about their new production and purchase tickets here. Performances start at 6.30 pm.
The Wanderers have very kindly agreed to give half the proceeds of their first show on Monday to the Friends of St George’s Gardens.
The company has set up a crowdfunding campaign to help raise additional funds to stage the show, so if any of you feel able to support the production, you can make a donation here. We know the company will hugely appreciate it, and it will go some way to ensuring that all the creative people behind the show can be properly paid for their work.
