The highlight of Tapestry's season is always their annual charity concert of Christmas readings and music. In recent years we have raised considerable funds for local charities such as the local branch of Dementia UK, Dreamdrops and the Lewin Stroke centre at Addenbrookes. Last year, we were delighted to raise £1000 for Epilepsy Action and this year, we are supporting the local charity Dan’s Hope. Dan has Ullrich Congenital Muscular Dystrophy and his charity raise vital funds for research to fight this muscle wasting condition.
Tapestry will be returning from their summer break to perform in the lovely setting of St Peter’s Church in Offord D’Arcy on the 7th of September. We are looking forward to returning to St Peter’s to enjoy the wonderful acoustic once again. We hope you’ll be able to join us and enjoy our eclectic selection of music for a late summer evening.
Tickets are £9 a head, which includes a complimentary drink. They can be obtained in advance from St Peter’s by calling 01480 811126 / 07776426103 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tapestry will return to Hemingford Abbots in June 2019 to participate in the biennial flower festival. The 2019 Hemingford Abbots Flower Festival will be held on 29th and 30th June from midday to 6pm. The chosen theme, which will be reflected in the floral displays and the music and services in the church, is "And God planted a garden eastward in Eden".
At least 20 gardens, several of which will also be refreshment venues, will be open throughout the village for visitors to enjoy. A rich assortment of exhibitions, displays, stalls and entertainment will ensure that there's plenty to keep you busy for the duration of your visit.
Tapestry will be performing in the tranquil setting of St Margaret’s church, which will be decorated to reflect the festival theme. Visitors can enjoy the gorgeous flowers whilst enjoying Tapestry’s eclectic range of beautiful a cappella songs. Not to be missed!
Tapestry will be travelling to York to present a concert in the medieval city centre venue of St Helen Stonegate. This afternoon concert will be part of the City of York’s 2019 ‘Festival of Ideas’. The theme for our concert is the theme of the 2019 festival - ‘A World of Wonder’. As usual, Tapestry will present an eclectic mix of sacred and secular music, period to contemporary. We promise you a programme that will be thoughtful, fun, uplifting and beautiful.
Tapestry will be returning to the Church of St Mary the Virgin in Great Abington in the spring of 2019. They last visited the church in November 2017 for an advent concert which raised over £500 for the John Chaplin Open Church Project. They are looking forward to returning to the church for another rich and varied programme of a cappella music.
Following the success of their first joint concert in November 2018 - Tapestry will be once more joined by the Brampton and Wyton Military Wives Choir for a concert in the spring of 2019. In the last concert, the choirs joined together for a specially written arrangement of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ - so we wonder what this next concert will bring!
Tapestry will perform a wide ranging and varied programme of sacred and secular music for Lent and Lady Day. You can expect some beautiful and inspiring singing in the lovely setting of St Margaret’s Church.
Tapestry will be joining forces with Huntingdon Male Voice Choir for a concert on 23rd June in St Mary's Church, Burwell during the Isle of Ely Arts Festival.
