Spotlight concert

I am trying organise another spotlight concert in the summer term at St. Andrews Church in Ampthill on Saturday 7 July 2018.

If you have not heard of this type of event before it is a concert aimed at giving players and singers of all ages (including adults) and levels of ability the chance to take centre stage either as a soloist or as part of a small ensemble. It has always been a popular event and those taking part either as performers or in the audience have enjoyed the experience.
