Forthcoming events

Two concerts are coming soon. We hope that a fair sum of money will come BTMAT’s way as a result.

The Rector and Churchwardens of Thorpe Malsor C of E Church, Northamptonshire, invited us to arrange a musical concert in the Church. This has been planned, and takes place on August 27th. We have Faryl Smith, a talented mezzo-soprano (who is 16 years old today – July 23rd) – and a Patron of our Trust, to sing for us; an even more youthful boy (age 14) to sing to us; a prize-winning organist, Mark Pescott to perform solos on the newly restored Casson organ, and a choir to sing music in a lighter vein, under the leadership of an experienced musician of Kettering – Miss Janet Spence.

On November 11th there is to be a performance of ‘Half a Sixpence’ – a musical based on HG Wells’s novel ‘Kipps’ and made famous by Tommy Steele. Curious that Peter studied this book for his O Level English Lit., 58 years ago! The show will be held at Sharnbrook Mill Theatre; a beautiful restoration of the old mill. Of the 200 available seats, half are for the benefit of Dr Barnardo’s Charity, and half for BTMAT.

Do you live anywhere near Kettering, Northants, or Sharnbrook, Beds?
