In the spirit of the coffee concerts of Bach's Leipzig in the 1730s, we invite you to enjoy an afternoon of refreshment and music at All Saints, Hessle.

The programme is still acquiring new additions, but we expect it to include at least:

  • Sumer is icumen in
  • Folk songs from John Rutter's Sprig of Thyme
  • Madrigals by Thomas Morley, John Wilbye and Orlando Gibbons
  • An arrangement of Bach's Coffee Cantata

The performance will commence at about 3 pm, but refreshments will be available before that. So, come early, collect a cake and a coffee (or tea) and enjoy them whilst listening to the musical fare. More edible fare will be on offer again afterwards.

Covid precautions

We are currently asking that concertgoers please sanitise their hands on arrival. Mask wearing is optional. There is plenty of room to space out in the church if you wish to do so.
