All Saints Church Westbury

Since 2015, the Little Lunch Music series of free concerts in All Saints Church, Westbury have already become a firm festival favourite; indeed so popular that we have had concerts at which we ran out of seats. (We can accommodate 250)

We are excited that for 2021, there will be some favourites from previous years but also some new performers to cheer up your lunchtime!

How do I get a ticket?: The concerts are free with no need to book, just turn up. There will be a voluntary but entirely optional collection plate if you would like to help towards the church’s costs but we are delighted for you to be our guest.

Can I bring my lunch?: Yes, as long as it’s not too noisy or messy and you don’t leave litter. A quietly eaten sandwich should be fine. There will also be refreshments on sale though – lovely home made cakes and teas/coffees to tempt you.

I can’t be there for the whole concert: That’s fine – just arrive/leave quietly the church is open all day for anyone to come and go.

Thanks

Westbury Festival are very grateful to the Reverend Rebecca Harris, the wardens and the PCC for giving permission to use the church and their enthusiastic support for the festival as a whole.
