The Tuesday Lunchtime Recitals date from around 1975, when the late Neil Aspinall, Director of The Apollo Society, and St Andrew’s Organist and Director of Music Arnold Pugh, agreed to organise a weekly event.
Churchwarden, the late Alan Hipkin continued the organising until his final illness in 2008, when Bill Griffiths took over the role until 2021. Churchwarden, the late Alan Hipkin continued the organising until his final illness in 2008, when Bill Griffiths took over the role. Following his retirement in 2021, the concert organisation was taken on by Tony Millinger and Bill Nealon, both members of the church choir, who have now handed the baton over to Ben Jennings our Community Engagement Lead.
Recitals begin at 1.00pm and last 30-40 minutes. Admission is free, audience members are however invited to leave a donation in the collection plate for the work of St Andrew’s Church. Yellow gift aid envelopes are available in the pews and at the back of church.
