There is a tradition of good music at St Nicholas’ and a series of lunchtime recitals are held in the Church every Wednesday throughout the year at 2.00pm lasting for 45 minutes. A minimum donation of £3.00 towards recital expenses is appreciated. The recitals provide a perfect break during the day with tea, coffee and cake available before the music begins. All are welcome to come and enjoy great music in our beautiful building.
