Suffolk churches: concerts and events

As part of my project to play the cello in all of Suffolk’s medieval churches, I am giving fundraising concerts and playing at church fundraising events around the county (and a few just over the border!). I am also available for weddings, funerals and other events. If you would like a fundraising concert at your village church, or cello music for a service or other church event, please contact me.

I am also now offering cello lessons to adults; please contact me.


Concerts in Whitton, Akenham, Newton, Cowlinge, Chattisham, Higham (nr Bury), Rede, Kersey, Semer and Sudbury (St Gregory’s) churches are also planned. Dates and details will be posted here as they are confirmed.
