October 26th. The Village Quire.
The last time the Village Quire visited Kingsland everyone present asked us to bring them back as soon as possible, and here they are. Singing the Songs of Silas, from H.E. Bates story about a loveable rogue, a womaniser who had a cottage full of homemade wine, told tall tales, drank, poached, and worked hard to avoid the bath tub!! The Village Quire have a reputation for spine tingling harmony and love of life that you get when voices are raised together. Come and hear for yourselves.

December 14th The Churchfitters
Anyone that managed to get to the almost snowed off performance by the Churchfitters two years ago will recall what a riotous evening it was. Now returning, again by popular demand, the Churchfitters have composed a special Christmas version of their wonderful show which is bound to be first rate entertainment. The three virtuoso musicians from England and France strut their stuff on a stage that bristles with instruments, including a stand up dustbin base and a bing bong machine made up of hacksaw blades!!!
Venue, the Coronation Hall.
Tickets are £15 and £10 to include mulled wine and mince pies.
