Swanwick St. Andrew's:  "EARLY BIRDS" are back, this is a thirty-minute slot with story and song for the very young, lasting  for half an hour from 9.45 am. There won't be an Early Birds on Easter Day but we'll put the next date up as soon as possible.  .

We hosted  the South East Derbyshire Music Centre - "SEDMC" - on  Friday 17th March.  This was an opportunity for young musicians to play duets, trios, quartets and solos and they were all very, very talented young people. 

The next concert at St. Andrew's will be the annual "Last Night of the Proms" brass band and organ concert on 24th June..
