2024 06 Highnam thumbnailBlest Pair of Sirens. The turbulent story of Stanford and Parry, told in their own words and music. A 7:30pm concert in Holy Innocents Church, Highnam.

This is an exciting venture for us: a midsummer concert, in this 100th anniversary year of the death of Charles Villiers Stanford, to explore his relationship with Hubert Parry - all performed in the church that was comissioned and decorated by Hubert's father, Thomas Gambier Parry.

Stanford and Parry were sometimes friends, sometimes colleagues, frequently clashing heads and never straightforward. We are delighted to welcome actors Edward Derbyshire, Gemma Bolwell and James Reynard, as well as organist Jonathan Hope, to tell the story.

Tickets cost £15 (£2 for under-18 and students). They are available in advance via our online sales, or on the door.
