Latest News and Events from SMAAAK

Look back …..

Attracting over 1000 visitors and with sales of £15,300, of which 25% goes towards the continuing renovation and improvement of the Church, we are delighted report that this year’s Kingsland h.Art was our most successful yet. Hard on its heels, the Arcadia Music Festival enthralled with works by Walton, Schoenberg, Ravel and Elgar on a timely theme of Home and Abroad. The concert raised over £350.  As ever, our thanks to all who supported these wonderful events.

Hank Wangford Trio, “No Hall 2 Small” Friday 18 November, Coronation Hall, 7.30

hank-wangfordIf you love Country music, or if you think it can take itself too seriously, try this! Hank Wangford, acknowledged godfather of British Country music, Brad Breath (Andy Roberts) and Spanner Anna Robinson perform honkytonking heart-broken songs of 1950s and 1960s rural America, via the 1984 British miners’ strike, right up to the present day. Described as “a must see and must hear gig” the music is beautiful, the stories funny and the band have a great taste in cowboy gear. Tickets at £15. Licensed bar.
