Heritage Music

St Mary’s will host an afternoon singing workshop followed by an evening concert on Saturday 29 April.

Supported by the National Heritage Lottery Fund as part our ‘Creative Church’ regeneration project, both the workshop and concert will tell the story of Walthamstow through music. Those attending the 2.30pm workshop will be invited to perform in the concert, which will be held that same evening at 6pm in St Mary’s – Walthamstow’s ancient church and oldest building.

Both events are free but require separate bookings.

See event details and the links to book below.
