   The Friends of St Mary’s Snettisham



A music event not to be missed!

On May 3rd the young gifted violinist Joo Yeon Sir, who has picked up many awards over the last few years, will perform a varied programme at St Mary’s Snettisham accompanied by Russian pianist Irina Andrievsky. The virtuoso pieces by Paganini will certainly show off her techniques and the modern arrangement of songs from Porgy and Bess will have one dancing in the aisles. Grieg and Vaughan Williams too appear on the programme and we are fortunate to have performers of such calibre come to Snettisham.

Tickets are £10.00 each (students under 21 are free) and are available from The Corn Exchange King’s Lynn or The Grapes Gallery Snettisham.

At the end of May, on May 26th at 12 noon we have another lunchtime recital. The Mirlitons are thought to be the only performing flute choir in Norfolk and began as a quartet of concert flutes and over the last few years have expanded to a total of nine players, incorporating the whole flute family of instruments.

In addition to the concert flute The Mirlitons now have the piccolo, alto and bass flutes, which gives a full and exciting sound to their music. The Mirlitons play a wide variety of styles from classical, baroque, jazz and popular and enjoy performing to audiences all over the county. The group is made up of professional and non-professional players.

Lunchtime recitals are free, and a simple lunch is provided.

The Village Cinema at The Memorial Hall on May 23rd sees the arrival of Paddington 2. Who does not fail to enjoy the antics of this adorable bear! The film stars Hugh Bonneville, Hugh Grant and Julie Walters.

Paddington is now living permanently with the Brown family and is a popular member of the neighbourhood. Whilst looking for a present for his dear Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday he discovers a book he thinks would be suitable but with Paddington nothing goes right from that point. Come and see watch his latest adventures.

Bar and doors open at 6.30pm for 7pm screening. Tickets are £5.00 on the door.

The June film will be “Film Stars don’t die in Liverpool”
