A concert of 15th century music is being held in support of the restoration of a north Norfolk church.

The concert, ‘All in a Garden Green’, is in aid of All Saints’ Waterden, and will be a celebration of gardens through the ages, inspired by the wild setting of the church on the Holkham estate.

It will take place at St Mary’s in South Creake, at 7pm on Saturday, June 16, arranged by the Friends of All Saints’ Waterden.

The music, from the 15th and 16th centuries, will be played on old instruments, and concert goers can also enjoy a talk from the Hexachordia music group after their performance.

Secretary of the Friends of All Saints’ group, Lucy Hodges, said: “We’d be really pleased if 60 people came and are hoping to raise a few hundred pounds.”

Tickets cost £10, including food, and are on sale at the Brazen Head Bookshop in Burnham Market (01328 730700), or at the door at St Mary’s from 6pm.
