Next Upcoming Event

Event: Carols and Classics by Candlelight
Location: All Saints Church, Merriott, TA16 5PS


A pre-Christmas hidden gem performed annually at the All Saints Church Merriott (TA165PS) provides an evening of Classical and Festive arrangements. This will be the 9th year that the Fisher Sinfonia has performed at this 15thC church providing an unmissable evening of string ensembles with organ and piano accompaniment. 2017 has been an extremely busy for the string musicians whose international orchestral commitments has seen them performing with major UK orchestras across all the continents (excluding Antarctica!). They use the occasion at Merriott to meet as friends, then to entertain and enthral a wide audience from over a 40 mile radius. This annual concert has amassed a significant following of appreciative classical and festive music lovers, raising funds for the church. The Carols & Classics concert on Saturday 16th December, will no doubt be another sell out, with mince pies and refreshments before the concert to start the Christmas festivities. 7:00pm refreshments for a 7:30pm concert start . Tickets are £8 available from Osbornes Store, Broadway, Merriott; Crewkerne Information Centre or contact 07870 404631 / 01460 76360, please book early to avoid disappointment.
