Coffee Break Concerts - 40th series

The Coffee Break Concerts were started by Kendrick and Mary Partington nineteen years ago in 1988 and have proved a popular attraction ever since. There are usually two series each year on Saturday mornings in February and October, and have been given mostly by young local musicians. There is no admission charge, but donations are invited for local charities. The concerts start at 11 o'clock and last for one hour. We serve coffee and home-made biscuits from 10.15am.
