There is a tradition of good music at St Nicholas’ and a series of music recitals are held in the Church every Wednesday at 2pm throughout the year lasting for 45 minutes. A minimum donation of £5.00 towards recital expenses is appreciated. The recitals provide a perfect break during the day with tea, coffee and cake available before the music begins.  All are welcome to come and enjoy great music in our beautiful building.  Doors open at 1.30pm.
