The Greenwood West Gallery Quire
at St Peter’s, Empingham 7pm on Sunday 21st October 2018

Why did a “Choir” become a “Quire”? What happened in the mid 1600’s which forced local communities to change their tune? This diverse group of about 25 costumed singers and instrumentalists will entertain us as they tell their story in music and the spoken word. It will surely be something a bit different.

Tickets in advance are £9 each, or on the door at £10.00 (free for children under 15 years).
Cash or cheques made payable to “Empingham PCC”

All proceeds to St Peter’s Church funds. Please help restore the damaged roof.
