2020 would have marked the 10th anniversaty of the Langton concerts, which have grown from a very modest beginning to clebrate the reurbishment of the church, the restoration of the bells and the refurbushment of the organ.
The 2020 season was obviously cancelled, as was a plan to hold a concert in May 2021. The May 2020 concert was reinstated as the autumn concert in 2021 and was remarkable as being the first concert in which a piano (actually a fortepiano) was heard in the church.
A full house heard music by Beethoven and Mozart and enjoyed the now traditional excellent drinks and canapes in the church afterwards.
The concert proved the positive words of the remarkable Capt Sir Tom Moore, who died in early 2020: “For all those people who are finding it difficult at the moment: the sun will shine on you again and the clouds will go away.“
The 2022 programme is now being prepared and we plan to retutn to the normal schedule of one concert in mid May and another in early September.
Please keep watching this page for details.
Note that the concerts have become increasingly well known – leaving very few if any places available on the night.
It is highly recommended to book early to avoid disappointment.
