Magical evening of music at Stroud church

Where: St Laurence Church, The Shambles, Stroud

When: Saturday, October 6, 7pm

A magical evening of music is being staged in Stroud to celebrate two landmark anniversaries.

Longfield, which provides specialist services for people in Gloucestershire affected by life-limiting illness, has been busy marking its 30th birthday with a year of celebrations including tea parties and open gardens throughout the summer.

One of its next major events is a Celebration Concert at St Laurence Church in Stroud on Saturday, October 6. The church, in The Shambles, is also this year toasting 150 years since it was rebuilt.

The parish church, with the exception of the original 14th century tower and spire, was pulled down and remodelled like many others across the country. The new church was consecrated and re-opened for worship by the then Bishop of Gloucester and Bristol in 1868.

To celebrate their milestone anniversaries, Longfield and St Laurence have joined together to stage an evening of wonderful music.

It will include a performance by the Band of the Gloucestershire Constabulary which has performed at some of the county's most prestigious venues, including Highgrove House and Gatcombe Park.

The audience will also be treated to a programme from the spectacular Caldicot Male Voice Choir which is passionate about traditional and modern Welsh music and regularly performs for charitable organisations and good causes.

Tickets to the Celebration Concert, which starts at 7pm on Saturday, October 6, cost £8 and are available from the church office or can be booked online at https://www.longfield.org.uk/Event/celebration-concert
