Peter King, Bath Abbey organist acclaimed as “a virtuoso of world class standing” (BBC Radio 3 CD Review), will showcase American organ music during a concert on the recently re-built Bryceson & Ellis organ in St Mary’s Church at 6.30pm, followed by an open house, bring-your-own picnic at the adjacent 17th century Manor and its featured gardens.
Organ concert at 6.30pm, followed by entry to Manor gardens from 7.30pm. Picnic set-up in Manor gardens from 5.30pm. Cost for combined organ concert (centre aisles) and Manor gardens picnic entry, to include welcome drink and apple pie and cream, £20. Organ concert only (side aisles) £10.
