“Just to say how much I enjoyed the Barber at Kingsland this evening. Huge fun, thank you very much”.

Just one of the comments received from an almost capacity audience at PopUp Opera’s performance of Barber of Seville which raised £900.  Our thanks go to Rev Julie, Dan Fordham for the generous loan of the superb All Star portable toilet facilities. and to our marvellous helpers: Sally Deakin, Sebastian Bowen and Mick Pothecary at the bar, Steph Scott at the door and Bronte Woodruff and Laura Rowlatt for organising a wonderful preview of h.Art 2016… of which more below.

From 10 – 18 September our lovely Church will host one of Herefordshire Art Week’s largest Group Shows showcasing 21 talented artists across a wide range of media. The show is free and runs from 10am to 4pm daily with a special late night Opening on Friday 16 September featuring Hereford College of Art’s talented Aerial Dance Troupe.

On Saturday 1 October we are delighted to co-host the 7th Arcadia Music Festival featuring violinist Thomas Bowes, pianist/composer Eleanor Alberga and other exceptional instrumentalists. The evening starts at 7.30pm at the Church. Ticket price tba.

Finally, on Friday 18 November a real coup for Kingsland. The peerless C&W Hank Wangford Trio play their wonderful gig “No Hall 2 Small” at The Luctonians from 7.30pm. Tickets at £15.

And don’t forget the Grand Kingsland Growing Potato Competition Weigh In at the Angel Inn. Please bring your bulging bags of spuds intact with soil. (or call us to arrange delivery) from 12 noon on Sunday 29 August.

All event tickets are available from Kingsland Post Office or T: 01568 709579, or on the door (but please check availability). Remember SMAAAK members receive a 10% discount!
