Tessa and Chris Howell invite you to this year’s Ironstone Festival on Friday and Saturday September 7th and 8th at St. Etheldreda’s church Horley.
There will be several pieces which involve 6 to 8 instruments (sextets and octets) including the wonderful Octet by Mendelssohn.
There is a festival pass if you come to everything with £5 off all tickets for Horley residents, and thanks to the generous Michael Hardinge Trust, Horley Children in full-time education can come free.
On Sunday 9th there will be a Festival Mass at which the Right Reverend Colin Fletcher, Bishop of Dorchester will preach and celebrate the Eucharist. All are welcome.

The annual Progressive Dinner took place last Saturday evening and was as ever an enjoyable and successful event. This year 82 villagers took part with 10 brave couples hosting!
Many thanks to the organisers and everyone involved for making it such a fantastic evening.
£1240 was raised for St Etheldreda’s church.
‘For 9 days from Ascension 11th May to Pentecost 19th St Etheldredas is joining the Archbishop of Canterbury’s call to prayer.
We have prayer stations in church and a new prayer walk leaflet for you to follow. So if you would like to step off the treadmill for a while or need an escape from exam stress pop in and enjoy the piece and quiet.’
For more information on the global wave of prayer see thykingdomcome.global.
‘Thanks to everyone who took part in the Smarties challenge during Lent.
£227 was raised for Banbury Young Homeless which was a great result.’
