Bar's Memorial Service is on Saturday 16th of September at 2pm to be held in Great Coxwell Barn.
Sebastian Muller and I are happy to announce that we will once again be part of the Great Barn Festival in Great Coxwell. As some of you know, we played in the barn for the past two years, and it was an amazing setting. However, we were quite limited in our choice of repertoire, because the space is very big and the acoustics are quite dry so we could not really indulge in the Romantic repertoire. We decided to change our venue this year to St Giles' Church, and it will still be part of the Great Barn Festival. Now we can at last play the Franck Sonata for Violin and Piano, the ideal piece for this acoustics. Some of you might know this work, one of the most beautiful sonatas written for violin and piano. The second half of the programme will included some selected works by Kreisler.
Tickets are now on sale and for any enquiries, please email Ainslie Williams at email@example.com

Hope to see you there,
Great Barn Festival 22-24th September will once again fill the village with music, theatre, art and fun for all the family.
Our Saturday Audience with Mark Chadwick is all but sold out so don’t delay. Stonevale Concerts will once again be part of the attraction, this year in the slightly less draughty St Giles’ Church but ticket holders are welcome to spend the day in the grounds at the barn before taking their seats in the church for what promises to be another beautiful performance.
Boogie Me will be raising the rafters on Sunday evening for a family barn dance with a difference and we will round off with some national circuit comedians from The Cackling Bat Comedy Club – there was never a more apt venue.
Join us to kick things off on Friday Evening with Robin Hood, a musical romp through one of our favourite tales full of big laughs for all ages from the director and producer of The Show That Goes Wrong. It is a wonderful night out and the bar will be open.
Tickets are online or avoid the booking fees and drop me a note at Danes Cottage 07774459046, firstname.lastname@example.org and I will extend a villagers discount to some of the performances and grounds passes without a fee.
