Events at the Meeting House

The Sunday before Christmas can be a last chance for a breathing space before the big day… This year, we’re thrilled to be welcoming by Soprano Milana Sarukhanyan and pianist/cellist Ben Finlay (who recently contributed brilliantly to the Vacation Chamber Orchestra’s summer concert here) in a lunchtime concert on Sunday 22nd December starting a 1.15pm.  Entrance is free, with donations accepted to be divided between the performers and Airton Friends Meeting.

Airton Friends Meeting is grateful for the support of the YDNP Sustainable Development Fund in assisting with the recent purchase of our piano, making it possible to present a varied and exciting series of events this year.


If you would like to hold an event making use of the piano or of any kind suitable for the Meeting House and Barn, get in touch with the Friend in Residence.
