St. Anne’s Sunday Concert Season 2013

Every Summer, this beautiful and historic church offers a platform for emerging artists and seasoned professionals to offer exciting and eclectic concerts in the historic and atmospheric setting of St. Anne’s.

Before and after the recitals, a delectable selection of teas, coffees, cakes
and scones are served in the parish hall. When you combine this feast with the idyllic location of Kew Green, neighbouring the world-famous Kew Gardens, it forms the perfect Sunday afternoon excursion.
All concerts begin at 3:30 pm and are FREE OF CHARGE. There is a retiring collection, which goes towards maintaining and developing the strong music tradition of the church.
