Cream teas 2022

Sunday afternoons starting: Sunday 3rd July, 3pm – 5pm

Langton Community Hall, Stonton Rd, Church Langton,
Market Harborough LE16 7SZ

We invite you to join us for our Sunday afternoon Cream Teas which resume on Sunday afternoons starting in July. We are looking forward to giving you a warm welcome once again to the lovely village of Church Langton and its church of St Peter.

It is a slightly later start to our Cream Tea season than usual, due to commitments of our volunteers with ‘Messiah’ and the recent Open Gardens events, but we are sure it will be worth the wait and look forward to welcoming our regulars and new visitors to enjoy tea and homemade cakes and scones in the Langton Community Hall, where car parking and toilets are available.

St Peter’s church is open to visitors at the same time, please so take a tour of our lovely church and its grounds and then enjoy a tea!

Homemade cakes and scones available for purchase as well as plants and produce, bookmarks and Guide Books of St Peter’s Church.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Here comes Summer! ūüôā

A Weekend of ‘Messiah’ at St Peter’s

Friday 13th and Saturday 14th May

Come and enjoy Messiah!

The Messiah was performed in an English parish church for the first time in 1759. It was held in St Peter’s church in the small hamlet of Church Langton in rural Leicestershire. The event was so popular, it caused traffic jams and filled every inn, in the area!

This weekend gives you the chance to find out how this unique performance came to be and why St. Peter’s was chosen – and then to enjoy a performance of the oratorio itself by The Knighton Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Dr Paul Jenkins with the Community Choir – Join in either as a member of the audience or as part of the Community Choir.

Neil Crutchley Talk

The celebration begins with an illustrated talk by Neil Crutchley (former Leicester Mercury’s ‘Mr. Leicester’ columnist)
