LAST FEW TICKETS REMAINING FOR EDINGTON ARTS’ CONCERT

There is still time to buy tickets for the Edington Arts concert on Saturday 23rd March, but fewer than 50 seats remain. The opportunity of hearing one of the world’s greatest tenors performing in one of the great musical works of all time, with some of the most exciting interpreters of the music, in Edington Priory Church, is proving very exciting.

Tickets for the Bach St John Passion, with soloists Mark Padmore, Florian Störtz and Ben Davies, and accompanied by the Oxford Bach Soloists and orchestra have been selling steadily since they went on sale at the beginning of January. There are still seats available from £12.50.

The Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire, Mrs Sarah Troughton, will be attending the concert, which is also a celebration of Edington Arts’ first ten years promoting live classical music concerts in Edington Priory Church.

Choose your seats, book and pay online from www.edintonarts.org, or phone Chrissy on 01380 81256 – but don’t delay!

The village contains a superb 14th Century Priory Church and the refurbished and renovated “Three Daggers” Public House as well as a number of picturesque houses. It is surrounded by very attractive countryside which offers an excellent variety of footpaths, many of which offer spectacular views from Salisbury Plain. The well-known Edington Music Festival is held annually in the Church., BBC television included a programme on the 50thanniversary of the Music Festival in its series “A Passion for Churches” which was transmitted on BBC2 in April 2006. Edington was the joint winner of the “Village of the Year” competition in 1999.  The judges were particularly impressed with the community spirit as evidenced by the wide range of events and activities. Many of these have continued to the present day; these include The Jazz Festival, The Summer Ball, The Village Fair & Evening Party, and the Flower and Produce Show.
