Friends of Fotheringhay Church present


Annual Piano Recital


Mary Stuart – A legacy of strong women


Recital by Valentin Schiedermair


Saturday 31st August, at 7.30pm


Fotheringhay Church,  PE8 5 HZ


Tickets: advance £10.00 / on the door £12.50


Valentin is a London-based German pianist who engages with his audience and draws on all his exceptional background and experience to take them on a musical journey. His objective is simple - to share the joy and excitement of music with his audience.  


Of interest to him at Fotheringhay is that his ancestor was Friedrich Schiller, who wrote the play in 1800, recently made into a film about the imaginary meeting between Elizabeth 1st and Mary Queen of Scots.

York Waits:

Two Faces of Fotheringhay

English music in the 1480s and 1580s


Saturday, 5th October 2019

7pm - 9:30pm


St Mary's and All Saints Church, Fotheringhay

Main Street, PE8 5HZ


Tickets: £10 general

           £12.50 on the door

Almost exactly a century separates the violent deaths of Richard III – England’s most controversial king, slain in battle in 1485 – and Mary Queen of Scots, who was executed in 1587. There is a strange symmetry between the fates of Richard and Mary. He was born in Fotheringhay Castle in Northamptonshire. She was beheaded there.


Between the lives and the deaths of the two doomed monarchs there were enormous changes in politics, culture, society and religion. Music too.


In separate projects and recordings, The York Waits – who play the wind and stringed instruments of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance – have explored the music of both the later 15th and 16th centuries. Now they bring the strands together and present a programme that highlights the contrasts – and some continuities – between the musical soundscapes of Plantagenet and Elizabethan England, with an excursion to the Scotland of the Stuarts.


In both periods, there were important influences and importations from the Continent, although the 15th century was a period when English composers also made a great impact throughout Europe.


Songs of 15th and 16th century England and Europe are sung by Deborah Catterall, and the Waits play instruments that include shawms and sackbuts, recorders, harp, organ, rebec, fiddle, flute, bagpipes, curtal and hurdy gurdy.

A young Prince travels to a land in search of adventure. He meets a bird-catcher, and a Queen attended by three feisty ladies.  She shows him a picture of her kidnapped daughter, and he falls in love. She sends him and the bird-catcher to rescue her daughter.


When the Prince arrives he finds a temple. He meets the man who snatched the princess, and finds him more benevolent than wicked. The princess hearing of the Prince, falls in love without having seen him.


The Prince and the bird-catcher are prepared to be inducted to the temple band. They are set trials – the Prince does well, but the bird-catcher finds them much more difficult, and he really isn’t bothered about joining the temple band. He just wants to find food, wine and a wife.


For the final trials of fire and water, the princess joins her lover, and they win the approval of the temple.  All therefore ends happily, except for the Queen and her ladies.


In this production, the characters turn up for a first rehearsal, not knowing which part they will sing, and they are chosen with the toss of a coin………

"Grrrr...has your recycling bin recently been 'red-tagged' and you don't know why?  Have you watched documentaries about where our 'recycling' ends up and wondered whether recycling is worth the bother? Do you despair at our wasteful use of resources? Charlotte Tompkins, Waste Services Manager, East Northamptonshire Council will answer all your questions about where the material collected through our waste, food waste and recycling collections goes, contamination issues - what else can/can't we put in our recycling, is recycling the answer or what can we do to be more wastewise.

"We have to change how we eat and grow food to fight climate change'...thus spake the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change...but how does that translate to what is happening here in the UK and how we can feed ourselves in a way that supports our agricultural industry, saves our planet and meets our tastes.


Tom Martin, aka Farmer Tom, Chair of the East of England Farming Conference and of the NFU Peterborough and Anthony Davison, local food proponent and founder of BigBarn CIC will cover the issues of food supply chain waste and how it can be reduced, how to eat 'climate friendly' and some of the UK’s environmentally sound farming techniques.

Tickets: £10 general / £8 Under 16 (non-allocated seating)


In 1120-22, Geoffrey de Clinton is recorded as having built on the current site of St Botolph’s in Barton Seagrave, a church with Norman architecture.  There may well have been an earlier building on the site, but we can be sure that by 2020, there will have been a Christian presence in Barton Seagrave for at least 900 years.  So, to celebrate 900 plus years of association between church and community, there will be a series of special activities and events throughout 2020.  We are calling this series Festival 900+.  


These Festival of Music concerts constitute one part of Festival 900+.  There will be six concerts during the course of two weeks in May 2020 (8th – 20th), each showcasing a different genre of music – Fiori Musicali performing Vivaldi’s Four Seasons plus vocal interludes (not sold through Oundle Box Office), Rushden Town Band playing music we know and love with their own special style, Reflections Strings playing popular light classics, The Frenchman Street Jazz Band playing Traditional Jazz at its best, The Rutland Wind Ensemble performing a varied programme including the beautiful Petit Symphonie by Gounod, and finally Chris Bannister whose tribute act to John Denver is one of the best there is.
