Events at the Meeting House

We’re excited to be welcoming the wonderful Pinsuti Chamber Choir to the Meeting House on 22nd June at 7.30pm.  This is the first of two performances of their summer concert, titled ‘Such stuff as dreams…’ – a choral fantasy of madrigals, anthems and songs, including settings of Shakespeare verse and contemporary poetry.  In the course of the evening we’ll be flying with Leonardo, smelling exquisite roses and wandering through the magical world of dreams.  An unmissable musical treat.

And on July 26th, we’ll find out if the Meeting House is good-enough-for-jazz… Local musician Robert Carson and his quartet will raise the rafters with what promises to be the coolest night of the Airton summer!  7.30pm, admission free – donations accepted on behalf of Airton friends Meeting and St. Michael’s Church, Kirkby Malham.

More events to be scheduled later in the year – keep checking our What’s on page and look out for our postings on Twitter and Facebook (both @Airtonbarn) over the coming months.
