Buy your tickets for the trumpet concert

Tickets are on sale now for The Trumpet Shall Sound! An evening with trumpet virtuoso John Barker. The concert takes place on Saturday 15th September at 6pm and tickets include a free glass of wine or juice and homemade savoury snacks during the interval.

Join us for an evening’s entertainment with one of Britain’s finest trumpeters, John Barker. His mixture of anecdote and musical performance has been described as ‘spell-binding’, as he draws on a varied repertoire ranging from classical (Schubert’s ‘Ave Maria’) to film tracks (‘Gabriel’s Oboe’ from The Mission), and from ballads (‘Over the Rainbow’) to traditional church music (‘Jerusalem’).

Author Jilly Cooper wrote after attending a concert: ‘You play quite beautifully with great accuracy and empathy, a lovely sound and huge tingle factor’.
