What an extraordinary evening! Many thanks to our cast, backstage crew and audience - and of course our sponsors Andrew Nunn. 

Rock in a Hard Place is a new musical which takes us through the life of St Paul. It has a witty and original script by John Theakston and music composed by Michael Reed and received its world premiere at St Paul's Church on Sunday 7 June at 7 pm. The cast included Bogdan Kominowski (who played Jesus in the original production of Jesus Christ Superstar), professional actors Danny Hill and performers Patrick Clancy and Keel Watson. The part of the narrator was sung by local opera singer Rebecca Gresson

You can now see lots of photos from the show at:

A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Open Air

    Wednesday 1 – Saturday 4th July 7.30 pm    

Our good friends the St Michael’s Players from our neighbouring church in Elmwood Road; are staging a magnificent Woodstock-inspired, production of Shakespeare’s famous comedy of love. For four evenings in July, our beautiful vicarage garden will be transformed into a festival of fun, music and magic that takes us back to the heady, hippy hazy days of the 1960’s. This will be the most lavish and ambitious production in the Players’ history: do join us in what promises to be the biggest trip of the summer!

 This magical and often hilarious tale of star-crossed lovers and mischievous spirits, tiffs, and trickery will appeal to all the family. So get your tickets before they disappear, grab some cushions and rug, and those tie-dyed t-shirts, and look forward to an evening under the stars in a wonderful, technicoloured parallel universe; where nothing is quite as it seems!

 Seating is all open-air, on the grass, and on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be some, limited traditional seating which can be reserved - please see website for details. There will be a bar serving food and drink – all proceeds from this go to the St Paul’s Church fund! Doors and the bar open on Wednesday and Thursday at 7 pm; then on Friday and Saturday they will open at 6.30 pm and there will be a BBQ available as well as a bar!

 Tickets are on sale now via the website. www.stmichaelsplayers.weebly.com

Bridging Cultures
Exhibition and walk in London Thursday 16 July

Stephanie White, is kindly organising this day out. We will catch 10.29 train to Waterloo and walk across Hungerford Bridge to Trafalgar Square and then visit an exhibition entitledThe Bridge in the crypt of St Martin in the Field. It contains writing and pictures by 47 artists from Muslim, Jewish and Christian heritage, and the description of it is that "In the midst of the increasing chasm of discord and misunderstanding that exists between the Middle East and the West, and between Christians, Muslims and Jews, our day calls for a new kind of movement; not of belief or religious unity, but one that build on what we hold in common. The Bridge acts as a catalyst for diverse peoples to come together, to provide understanding and create deeper respect for each other. It also means to encourage new friendships to be made across religions and cultures.". After this we will have a light lunch at a Pakistani restaurant and there is then the option to visit optional afternoon visit Brixton market in the afternoon. Stephanie has room for 10 people on the trip, and is charging £10 pp (excl transport but including lunch!!) to go towards our church roof project. If you wold like to come, please email Stephanie on sftwhite@gmail.com
