All Saints, Laughton, Sunday, 19 May 2023, 2.30 pm onwards
Music ancient and modern sung by the Trentcliffe Church Choir

Laughton’s resident Trentcliffe Church Choir and church organist will be performing an informal repertoire of music old and new at All Saints as part of this year’s West Lindsey Churches Festival, which takes place in May. 

Free and open to all, the festival is a great chance to take a look inside some of the most beautiful buildings in the district. The oldest building in Laughton, All Saints has been a part of village life since the twelfth century, marking milestones in the lives of many, many villagers, and its bell continues to chime the hours now as it did then, punctuating the days of the schoolchildren opposite and anyone waiting for the bus on the village green down the lane. 

The small local ensemble, who have been performing together for over a decade and often practise at Laughton on a Tuesday evening, sing at services, feast days and festivals throughout the church calendar year, as well as at weddings and funerals. Their patch is the Trentcliffe Group of parishes and occasionally Gainsborough; and the music they perform includes psalms and hymns, sung liturgy and modern church music. 

A warm welcome is extended to everyone to come and listen while soaking up the atmosphere of this Grade I listed medieval church with its striking Victorian painted chancel ceiling and tripych. Refreshments will be served during the weekend, and the event is informal so you can come and go as you like.
