As part of the Shipley Arts Festival, we will be holding the first socially distanced recording with invited audience in Sussex and the UK. Join us for a unique experience at St John the Baptist Church in Findon, Worthing.

The event will be generously hosted by Revd Helena Buque.

We will be recording music and fifteen socially distanced seats will be available from 4 pm. You will be able to be part of the first Live Recording in Sussex since March, and you will hear:

World recording premiere of ‘Shipley Idyl’ by Paul Lewis.

Elgar Serenade for Strings op 20.

John Ireland’s ‘Toccata.’

At 7pm after the recording has finished, the musicians and supporters will move to a gezobo within the church grounds to hear the first live concert performed in Sussex.

The fifteen guests will need to assemble outside our venue at two metre intervals and we advise bringing an umbrella just in case of rain. Guests will be brought into the church at two metre’s distance and seated similarly. We would ask you patience as we make sure that we keep everybody safe so that we can build on these very first Live Concert experiences in the UK as we come out of lockdown.
