Free Exchange Cafe - June 4th

Dear Friends

The popular Free Exchange CafĂ© is open next Sunday, 4th of June, from 10.30 to 12 noon, in the Church at Whitchurch Canonicorum

Enjoy freshly-brewed coffee, tea, croissants and pastries straight from the oven. Catch up with friends and neighbours, or browse the Sunday papers. Come for ten minutes or stay for an hour. 

Ros is away but the Children's Corner is open as usual, with lots of activities.

The Free Exchange Table is open, too. Bring something you no longer need, take something away if you like it or both or neither - whichever you choose, no money changes hands. Plants and Produce are always welcome. 

There's no charge for the Cafe (but feel free to leave a donation).

We hope to see you on Sunday.

Simon has given recitals as soloist and chamber musician all over the world. In recent years, he has performed in China, Canada, the USA, Sweden and Italy as well as extensively in the UK and Ireland. He studied at The Purcell School and the Royal College of Music, where he won a range of prizes and awards, including the Hopkinson Silver Medal.

The Alice Dilke Memorial Concert starts at 3pm. Tickets are £10, on the door only, and include tea and cake in the interval. Children under 14 are free of charge.
