Monthly concerts in St. Peters


on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 10.30am.

Donations this year to 

(FORCE - Cancer Support Group - Exeter)

            The Next Coffee Concert is on Wednesday January 22nd at 10.30am.

                                        We're going to try something new!!

                                         ... A singalong round the piano!

               - well you can actually stay in your seats for this, but hopefully the result will be the same.

  If you feel like a "warble" on the 22nd, come along to St. Peter's (coffee first - and

      during) and we'll sing some good old favourites to beat the Winter blues.

  I'm sure we can manage some requests too.  If there are any Kroft Originals &

    Old Peculiars around at the time, then perhaps they'll give us some support.

 Do hope you can join us - the atmosphere is very friendly and informal and there's 

                              always plenty of coffee & biscuits and chat.

    The retiring collection this year will be for FORCE - the Cancer Support Group

                                                based in Exeter.

What a lovely concert we had this morning - performed by Kathryn & George!

                      Many thanks to them for brightening a dull day!!

We really appreciate the time and effort which goes into preparing these marvellous concerts.

There is so much talent in East Devon - and so many musicians, singers and speakers who are prepared

to give up their time (for free) to entertain us and raise money for local charities.

This year, all donations will go to ARC - Axminster Recovery thru' Counselling.  Today another £85 

was collected, making our total £1195.

The next Concert will be held on Wednesday 22nd January.  If you are free, please do come along.

Performers TBA
