Royston and District Choral Society’s next concert is to take place in Barkway this weekend.

The concert features A Sprig of Thyme, a medley of English folk songs arranged by John Rutter.

There will also be Vaughan Williams’ tribute to Sir Henry Wood – Serenade to Music – and gospel choruses arranged by Ken Burton, familiar to BBC Songs of Praise viewers.

A spokeswoman said: “Join us in beautiful Barkway for a wander down a rustic memory lane, or to discover these melodies for the first time.”

It’s on Saturday at Bakway’s parish church at 7.30 pm. Tickets are £12 – or £9 for concessions, and £1 for school students – and are available from choir members, online at, on the door or from Caroline Franks on 01920 822723.

The next open rehearsal for the choir is on Tuesday, September 11, at 7.45pm in Royston’s parish church – where visitors will not be asked to sing on their own.
