MUSICAL PROGRAMME 2022
 
Michael Hancock, the husband of The Rev’d Eleanor has generously arranged a programme of entertaining evenings in our church. All proceeds will go to St Cuthbert’s. Quote: Dear all, I am pleased to announce the inaugural Carlisle City Concerts series at St. Cuthbert’s from April to July:
 

Friday April 22nd at 7.30pm: John Davies, Philip Gruar and Elizabeth Dodd, Susan Jordan and Avril Tisdall - A fascinating evening on the Eve of St George’s Day and Shakespeare’s Birthday, with songs chosen for the occasion, piano pieces by Debussy and Chopin, evocative music played on Renaissance instruments, and a speech or two from the pen of the Bard himself. An evening of elegance to savour; an oasis of charm and culture.

Friday May 27th at 7.30pm: Brampton Chamber Choir with Max Loth Hill, historian - A highly entertaining and imaginative evening.

Saturday June 25th at 3.00pm: James Booth Guitar with Cumbrian award winning poet Melissa Davies.

Sunday July 10th at 3.00pm: Polished brass! The Eden Brass Quartet!

Free admission - a collection will be invited and gift aiding encouraged‌ (minimum suggested donation suggested £10). Light refreshments will be served at the end of each concert. Concerts will last about an hour without interval.
Please note that we now accept plastic.

Solway Singers have booked the Church for a concert on Saturday 14 May. More details later.

The Church stands not east-west but square to the Roman Road north through Carlisle (the A6, in town Blackfriars St). It is therefore of early foundation, perhaps before St Cuthbert's visit to Carlisle in 685. The present Church, probably the fourth on the site, dates from 1778.

It has a unique moving pulpit, a fourteenth century window, a window commemorating our hospitality to a Latvian Lutheran congregation, and a very attractive series of windows depicting the life of St Cuthbert. It is open every day from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm (see above). Our motto is: "Christian Hospitality"
