St John’s Ranmoor Concert tomorrow Sunday 3rd July


A reminder of the  concert being given in All Saints’ Church Slingsby at 3:30pm tomorrow, Sunday 3rd July by the Boy Choristers, Choral Scholars and Songmen of St John’s Church, Ranmoor, Sheffield.

More details in our earlier post HERE.

A rare chance to enjoy music making of a standard usually only found in our cathedrals – and the organ should get a good gallop round the paddock too.

Tickets £5 to include tea or coffee in the Village Hall afterwards


Interesting fact – Revd Bridget Brooke, now (technically!) retired priest at St John’s Ranmoor, is a descendant of Revd Arthur S Brooke, Rector of Slingsby for 46 years until 1928, and author of the leading book on Slingsby. It was Revd Bridget’s connection with Slingsby that helped to start the visits by St John’s Choir.
