Music Appreciation Group

The Music Appreciation Group meet once a month in church where a varied selection of music is listened to and mutually enjoyed.  We begin at 7:30pm on the third Friday of each month and there is a donation of £2 each month.

The alphabet trail will be resumed with “L” themed music when the group next meets on Friday, 19th January, at 7.30.p.m. in Pakefield Church. All existing and newcomers are most welcome to come along with their “L” featured music from all genres, artists and composers to share or simply enjoy in this beautiful venue. The usual £2. donation will apply.
