Recitals planned for All Saints Church in King's Lynn
All Saints Church is taking the lead in bringing live music back to King’s Lynn with two recitals planned for next month.
If no more restrictions are imposed the church will stage recitals with socially-distanced audiences on October 4 and 11.
Peter Godden, a retired clergyman, has also taught music and was organist at Inverness Cathedral for several years.
He is now diocesan organs adviser for St Edmundsbury and Ipswich.
His varied programme at All Saints on October 4 at 3.30pm will include music by JS Bach, Percy Whitlock and Cesar Franck.
A week later, on October 11, Donald Bousted will feature classical ukulele music at 3.30pm. Having travelled the world, he settled in Norfolk and until his recent retirement taught ukulele and guitar.
A suggested donation of £8 in aid of All Saints will be payable at the door (cash only).
The audience will have to wear face masks in accordance with national requirements.
Churchwarden Christine James said: “All Saints Church, with its good acoustic, has an established tradition of staging concerts through the year and we hope government restrictions will enable us to host these two events which may well provide the first opportunity to enjoy live music in a Lynn venue for many months.”
