A rare opportunity to be transported back in time will take place at All Saints Church, Minstead on Saturday 8th October at

‘A Village Harvest’ will be staged by The Madding Crowd, a local group established in 1975, who research and perform in costume, songs, hymns, dances and poems collected from C17th-C19th village manuscripts and books.

The concert blends music and words to create the atmosphere of the old church bands. The music is often sung in wonderful four part harmony, and is close to traditional or folk music.  It promises to be a lively, amusing and informative evening.

The event is being held to raise funds for Minstead Training Trust’s 30th anniversary appeal. Established in 1986, the Trust works with over 150 people with learning disabilities, providing practical training in life skills, work-based skills and health and wellbeing from its base in Minstead, nr Lyndhurst.
