Spring Concert – Janette Munroe and Il Destino, with the choir of Church Langton Primary School

An outstanding event which filled St Peter’s with people and music! This wonderful concert brought London’s West End to Church Langton! It evoked the 18th Century music festival organised by Rev Hanbury himself! This outstanding concert took place on 5th May on the first glorious evening of this glorious summer! We were treated to some of the biggest hits from Broadway and the West End. The singers were supported by the choir of Church Langton Primary School – who sang so well, it’s argued that they stole the show! This event raised £2,911 – Huge thanks to all!
