Organ Recital

Saturday 16th April

Time 7.30pm

On Saturday April 16th, Ashley Grote will return to The Priory Church to give a recital on the magnificent Harrison and Harrison organ for which he led the fundraising appeal while Director of the Edington Music Festival from 2010-2012.

Everyone who knows him from his time in the post will know him as a brilliant communicator, but his incredible skill and musicality as an organist may be better known in Norwich, where he has been Master of Music since 2012.  He has been waiting for an opportunity to put the organ through its paces so we are delighted that the time has finally come!


Tickets are £20 front nave, £15 rear nave, and £10 sides.  18 and unders come free, and there is a 10% discount for Edington Angels.
