Advent Celebration in Steeple Aston

We begin Advent in Steeple Aston with an evening of words and music, poetry and song and instruments blending together under the direction of Nicholas Cleobury with singers from St Martin in the Fields, London and two astounding young Australian violinists, Eliza Scott and Liam Keneally. Advent is always a special time - a time of excitement and yearning, a preparation for all that is to come as the year turns toward Christmas. This Advent promises to be especially wonderful, as we settle in to words familiar and new, sounds that are comforting and just a little disturbing, making December burn bright with the light of the coming Christ. Come and join us in Steeple Aston church on December 1

Cathedral Singers in Tackley

On December 8th we welcome the Cathedral Singers of Christ Church, Oxford, to St Nicholas' Tackley for what promises to be a superb evening of seasonal music! The Cathedral Singers sing over a hundred services a year at the Cathedral, when the Cathedral Choir is away or on vacation. They are made up of talented local volunteer musicians, from young professionals to professorial fellows (including our own Peter Read) under the direction of James Morley Potter. 2018 saw the 40th anniversary of the choir. We are very fortunate to be hosting one of their two Christmas concerts (the other is at the Cathedral) and we very much hope that St Nicholas will be full to bursting as we begin December wit
