Music on the levels presents
Music on the Levels announces a new programme of concerts for the 2018-19 season with the return of several groups from previous seasons and some exciting presentations new to Westonzoyland. Later in the season, there is a variety of concerts making full use of the wonderful acoustics of the beautiful historic St Mary’s church, recently re-ordered to provide flexible seating, catering, toilet facilities and (perhaps most importantly) a new heating system.
Thanks to grants from Sedgemoor District Council, Westonzoyland Parish Council and generous donations, the concerts are free to attend, although there is a modest charge for the sumptuous home-made teas that are available to enjoy while you listen.
There is no need to book; just turn up at the Church Hall in time to be seated by 3.30 pm. Doors open at 3.00 pm. Contact Ann Philcox on 01278 691438 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
