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 https://bit.ly/RCSJun2018, 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.
