Church of England Diocese of Manchester Swinton and Pendlebury

Concerts and similar occasions

During 2020 we expect to have a number of concerts in Saint Peter's. Sometimes these are in aid of either our general parish funds or our Saint Peter's Restoration and Development Trust, whilst on other occasions they are put on by other groups that have asked to use our church.

Unfortunately we have to announce the cancellation (because of the Coronavirus situation) of the Houghton Weavers concert on May 1. Those who have already bought tickets are invited to apply for a refund via the parish office in the Fletcher Hall (our parish hall) in Vicarage Road, Swinton (0161 727 8175 & [email protected]). 

The Coronavirus has also caused the cancellation of the concert planned for Monday 11 May at 7 p.m. by the very talented students of Pendleton College. We hope they will be with us again soon. And our visit from the Farnworth and Walkden Brass Band for Wednesday 3 July is also cancelled. As soon as the way ahead is clearer we will be arranging a new date with them. 

The concert with the Lancashire Fusiliers' Band and the Corps of Drums planned for September 12 has also been cancelled. The Band have invited us to offer a date for 2021 and we expect to welcome them on Saturday 11 September, 2021.
