From Bach to Bernstein concert

​St Austin's Theatre was full to capacity  on Saturday 10 February 2018 when the professional string quartet [Opel - who gave their services free], St Austin's Choir and St Austin's Players combined to entertain the full capacity audience of parishioners, members of our community and families.  They were treated to beautiful music from Opel, Renaissance Singing from St Austin's Choir and humerous sketches from St Austin's Players.  The theatre was lit professionally creating a stunning set for the performers and audience alike.  Many people worked very hard and the many remarks afterwards by members of the audience were testament to their achievement and to the great success of the evening.  Mrs Catherine Barber drove this initiative which resulted in a fabulous and memorable evening for so many people.  Catherine wishes to express her appreciation for the support she received.  All money raised will be used to used to maintain St Austin's Church.  Thank you to all who supported this initiative in so many different ways.
