This Concert brought to an end a week when we have been privileged to host an Exhibition of Artwork by prisoners from HMP Styal and HMP Thorn Cross.

 Proceeds of the Concert were in aid of the RVS Luncheon Club which meets on the church premise each Tuesday and Thursday, and volunteers from the RVS served refreshments at the close of the Concert.

We were fortunate to arrange for some members of Capriccio to provide the programme for the afternoon, and here is some information about the Group which gave us an amzing afternoon, thoroughly enjoyed by the audience:

Capriccio Vocal Ensemble is a group of singing friends who join together from time to time to put on concerts to raise funds for local good causes. They perform a mix of classical and popular music both sacred and secular ranging from early English choral works to a variety of twentieth century favourites (Byrd to The Beatles and Beyond!). They would be delighted to hear from potential beneficiaries. Please contact Cherry Smith if you think they can help. E-mail cherry@tmsservices.co.uk, or phone 01625 829805
