These all take place in Old St Martin’s, Cornmarket in Worcester.

In addition the monthly coffee concert at St Martin’s London Road at 10.15am on Saturday 28th April will feature baroque music from Rococo, local musicians Jane Charles (baroque flute), Angela Cranmore (viola da gamba ) and David Brookshaw continuo.

And on the afternoon of Saturday 28th April, Blondel will be playing to visitors in the Commandery Museum…a building with a hugely significant history here in Worcester.
