Only a few tickets are left for the first concert to take place since the restoriation of the historic St Nicholas Chapel - and a special treat is in store for the audience.
A quarter peal will be rung on the chapel's recently restored bells following The Fairey Band concert, which starts at 6.30pm.
Led by Emma Southerington, ringers from across the diocese will be ringing out the bells. Graham Clifton, who helped restore the bells, is joining them.
The chapel's bells were restored thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, which also contributed £2.3 million to the restoration of the building.
Since the bells returned home in August, new wheels and clappers have been fitted and they are now ready to ring out.

Heather Bolt of the Friends of St Nicholas' Chapel said: 'In March this year, to our delight and gratitude, the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded a generous grant of £24,000; which enabled the restoration of the bells to go ahead and included £6,000 towards community projects.
'Without the help of the Heritage Lottery Fund, the bells would still be languishing in a warehouse in Oxfordshire.'
