Campden and District music society with a Russian Connection

The Campden and District Music Society launches its 47th season on Tuesday 9th October 2007 with a concert by the Fitzwilliam string quartet. Lucy Russell, Jonathan Sparey, Alan George and Andrew Skidmore founded the group in 1968 when they were Cambridge undergraduates and became well known through their close association with Dmitry Shostakovich, who entrusted them with the Western premieres of his last three quartets. With a busy concert programme across the world, many recordings and international awards, Campden Music Society is delighted to have them launch their concert series.

Principal sponsor of the 2007 festival - Jackson Stops & Staff. Steinway piano sponsored by Cutts of Campden.

Ebrington Bells appeals for new members

St Eadburgha’s Church Ebrington(From the Chipping Campden Bulletin. included with kind permission of Jeremy Green)

Our original three bells were augmented over time, thanks to the generosity of the church council and other benefactors, and we have now enjoyed our current ring of six bells for 160 years.

Generations of bell-ringers have rung and continue to ring for services, weddings, celebrations and other special events, and the tradition is maintained to this day.
