This special concert promises to provide a magical experience!


-  Acclaimed Cambridge Academic and Choral Director Dr

David Skinner

conducts his new vocal ensemble The Alamire Scholars

assembled from the very cream of Cambridge’s young vocal talent                                        

-  James Parsons plays the Wingfield ‘Early English’ organ  

-  redoubtable and entertaining historian Dr David Starkey paints the scene


Together they seek to rediscover Fotheringhay’s rich musical heritage.

Fotheringhay Church draws visitors from all over the world!

Impressive as it is, the building is now just a fragment of an impressive royal establishment nurtured by the Dukes of York. By the 1440’s, Fotheringhay was a College of Singing Priests, living in a large, well-appointed College. Their community included eight singing men and thirteen choir boys.

Music at the College must have been impressive and there were two organs. Composers who lived there or visited included Hugh Aston, Richard Davy and Christopher Tye. Later, Fotheringhay and Oundle schoolmaster John Sadler collected these composers’ key works in his PartBooks (now in the Bodleian Library).


Hear these remarkable compositions, in glorious polyphonic blend, on 25 May!

And in the second half – revel in the richly expressive choral compositions of our great English muses Thomas Tallis and William Byrd, dating from the 16th century when, after St Mary’s College Fotheringhay College had been disbanded (thanks to Henry VIII’s reforms!), church music composers were required to write in English – for fear of the Tower of London!

A special feature of this special concert will be James’s organ solos, played on a small organ just like the organs of mediaeval Fotheringhay. We are thrilled to be hosting a residency of the Wingfield Organ, on loan from the Royal College of Organists; it is precisely modelled upon surviving pieces of a 16th century instrument found in Suffolk – high pitched and hauntingly beautiful in tone.

Eminent historian Dr David Starkey should prove an added attraction, as he paints the scene in his inimitable sparky style!

Join us for an unusual and memorable evening.


Proceeds from the concert go to the church.

THE HAPPY PRINCE (15)


Sunday 2nd June (7.30pm)


Stahl Theatre, Oundle

West Street, PE8 4EJ


Cast:  Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Emily Watson

Director:  Rupert Everett

Release:  2018

1hr 45min


The last days of Oscar Wilde - and the ghosts that haunted them - are vividly evoked in Rupert Everett's directorial debut. Everett gives a career-defining performance as Wilde, physically and emotionally embodying the literary genius as he lives out his last days in exile in Europe. His body ailing and heavy, his mind spinning, he survives by falling back on the flamboyant irony and brilliant wit that defined him.


‘Everett’s movie is expertly interspersed with flashbacks to Wilde’s great days.

Sunday 9th June (7.30pm)


Stahl Theatre, Oundle

West Street, PE8 4EJ


Cast:  Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee

Director:  Bryan Singer

Release:  2018

Runtime: 2hr 14min


Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, its music and its extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most loved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through its iconic songs and revolutionary sound, its near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and its triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid. Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music, in the process cementing the legacy of a band that was always more like a family and which continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music-lovers to this day.


‘The music sequences in this drama (especially the Live Aid performance) are electrifying, and Malek is magnetic...’

Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media

Those Who Are Loved


Monday, 17th June


St Peter's Church

North Street, PE8 4AL


Tickets: £8/£6

£1 off early bird till 10th June


Those Who Are Loved is set against the backdrop of the German occupation of Greece, the subsequent civil war and a military dictatorship, all of which left deep scars.


Themis is part of a family bitterly divided by politics and, as a young woman, her fury with those who have collaborated with the Nazis, drives her to fight for the communists.


Themis is eventually imprisoned on the notorious islands of exile, Makronisos and Trikeri, and has to make a life or death decision. She is proud of having fought, but for the rest of her life is haunted by some of her actions. Forty years after the end of the civil war, she finally achieves catharsis.


Victoria Hislop sheds light on the complexity of Greece’s traumatic past and weaves it into the dynamic tale of a woman who is both hero and villain, and her lifelong fight for justice.

Her first novel, The Island, held the number one slot in the Sunday Times paperback charts for eight consecutive weeks and has sold over two million copies worldwide. It won the Richard & Judy Summer Read competition.


Other books include The Return, The Thread, The Last Dance and other Stories, The Sunrise and Cartes Postales from Greece. Victoria Hislop's last book, Cartes Postales from Greece, is fiction illustrated with photographs. It was a Sunday Times bestseller and one of the biggest-selling books of 2016.
