Last Flocks of Words this Friday

Lovely write up in this month's edition of The Cleobury Clarion outlining our last concert of Flocks of Words with the wonderful Kate Innes this coming Friday at Cound Church.

'That careful blending of words and music created a magic atmosphere that has the audience applauding enthusiastically as each number ended.'

Tickets are available from Ann Cooke 01952 510388 or Linda Clutterbuck 01743 761435. We hope to see you there!
