Latin American music brought extra sunshine to a bight February Sunday

On Sunday 24 February in Westonzoyland’s parish church, Paradis Palm Court Trio played a varied programme of some familiar and some not-so-familiar pieces from their ‘Latin American Collection’. Introducing them with interesting facts and anecdotes including that Arthur Benjamin received a bottle of rum each year from the Jamaican Government in recognition of the prestige brought by his popular Jamaican Rumba!

Large audience justifies move to church

An audience of nearly 100 enjoyed the concert by folk duo Michell and Vincent last Sunday- 27 January.

‘We took the decision to move the concert from the small church hall into the much larger church’, says Celia, one of the organisers, ‘otherwise we would have been sending people away!’

This was a typical comment: ‘Wonderful afternoon . . . .  Great to see such a big and appreciative audience particularly.’
