June is (nearly!) bustin’ out all over!

We’re already into our 2018 season, having kicked off the ‘Last Friday’ series at St George’s, Whyke in April with a superb concert. But the summer season starts in earnest this weekend with our annual trip to Slindon College for the wonderful Slindon Fete (Saturday May 26th, 2pm)

June really will be ‘bustin’ out all over’ though with:

  • a busy opening weekend at the Chichester Cathedral Festival of Flowers (Saturday 2nd, 9.30am)
  • our now annual visit to the Alexandra Theatre, Bognor (Sunday 3rd, 2pm)
  • our regular outing to the beautiful gardens at Stansted for the Garden Show (Saturday 9th, 2pm) 
  • our Chichester Festival concert at St Paul’s (Saturday 16th, 7.30pm).

Check out all of our events on our Facebook page or our Diary of events page – and you can even print some posters out to help us advertise our upcoming concerts!
