The first Langton Concert took place in September 2010 to celebrate the completion of a programme of restoration and conservation of the church which included the rehanging of the church’s six bells, complete internal redecoration in the original Georgian colour scheme and the restoration of the small Bryceson chamber organ by Goetze & Gwynn. From this small beginning the two summer concerts have become a regular feature and have proved immensely popular with a wide variety of outstanding performers playing excellent chamber music to capacity audiences.
The first of the two 2019 concerts will be on Saturday 11 May. The second will be in early September.
The format for the evenings remains unchanged from previous years.
Concerts will start at 6.30 pm and will be followed by canapés and drinks served in the candle lit Georgian church.
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.
Saturday 11 May 2019 at 6.30 pm
