At 7.30pm – for just one night only – the church will be transformed into a cinema of the silent movie era. Complete with organ accompaniment.

Anthony Gowing, a nationally renowned organist, has a particular passion for accompanying silent movies on the organ.

For this very special occasion, which is to raise much needed funds for the Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society, where Anthony is accompanist. He will accompany the full length feature film 'The Phantom of the Opera' which was made in 1925 and stars the then very popular Lon Chasey.

Free entry – no need to buy tickets in advance. There will be a retiring collection (recommended minimum donation £8). This is a great opportunity to do something a little different on a February evening at the end of half term and help a good cause in the process. St Peter's renowned 'posh' refreshments will be available.
