Events this autumn

On Saturday November 11th, there’s a Ceilidh in St Michael's Parish Hall which will raise funds for the redecoration of the church. It's on Saturday November 11th, from 6.30pm to 11pm, with Scottish dancing - to the band Dalcassian - starting at 7pm. Tickets cost £15, including finger buffet, and are on sale from Amanda Butler-Smith (8747 1561) or the Parish Office. Amanda would also love more prizes for the fund-raising auction!

On November 8th, Christmas cards go on sale at the Cards for Good Causes shop in St Michael & All Angels.
On Saturday November 18th, at 7.30pm, the Hogarth Singers will be performing at St Michael's Sutton Court, Elmwood Road - instead of here, because of the scaffolding.

On Saturday December 2nd, at 7.30pm, the Addison Singers will be performing at St Michael & All Angels.

On Saturday December 9th, we're marking the restoration of St Michael & All Angels and the centenary of John Betjeman, with a 'Betjeman in Bedford Park' evening. It will be a terrific event, raising funds for the church's redecoration - booking opens next month.

On Saturday December 16th, the Hogarth Singers will be back at St Michael & All Angels for their annual Christmas concert.
