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! 🙂

The art of Tony Spencer

The artist behind our 2020 Christmas Card

We are delighted to announce that our Christmas Card for 2020 is in production and should be delivered to our villagers in the coming days.

This year, we have decided to change the cover image from a photograph to a painting and our artist is long-time Church Langton resident Tony Spencer. We thought you might like to see a little more of Tony’s work and find out a bit more about him, in his own words…

Merry Christmas! Painting of St Peter’s Church by Tony Spencer

I’ve always loved drawing and painting ever since I was a kid and loved it even more at secondary school as you could use all the mediums; and my art teacher used to encourage you to try anything! My art teacher, bless her, wanted me to go to Art College, but in those days as the eldest son, you were expected to help put food on the table, so I missed out on that and started work age fourteen.

I suppose the two artists whose work I loved, were Turner and Constable. Turner with his majestic use of oils to paint ‘The Fighting Temeraire’ and Constable with his peaceul ‘Haywain’.

I love having a dabble with any medium but suppose I like pastels the best . As for my connection with Church Langton? Well I served twelve years in HM Forces and settled here in 1979 have been here since…
