Event Details

You are warmly invited to join us at the Monastery to enjoy the wonderful, live musicianship of Stephen Mann, the last organist of St Francis Church (1989), as he performs several organ recitals, live at the Monastery. Stephen will be accompanied by James Hutton and Donald Turnbull on violin & John Hofton on flute & recorder.

An absolute treat for your ears and particularly poignant for those who remember hearing the original Monastery organ.
