The quality of performances at St Botolph’s Church are now very high indeed, increasingly attracting audience from beyond the local vicinity.
All concert proceeds will continue to be donated to St Botolph’s Church restoration projects. The Church and community would like to thank both the audiences and the performers for their generosity. Since 1998 the concerts have raised over £20,000 towards these projects. Thanks too to the dynamic Trunch Village Society for its support for publicity.
Performers reserve the right to change their programmes from those indicated in the brochure or website. The organising team will take reasonable steps to give notice if any concert has to be postponed or cancelled. Please check this website for up to date information closer to the dates of the concert.
The proceeds from the concerts go to restoration projects at St Botolph’s, one of Norfolk’s finest churches. Musicians give their services very generously in the knowledge of that they too are contributing to the upkeep of this spiritual, architectural and acoustic gem.
In 2005 the tower was secured from splitting. In 2010 the chancel roof was repaired. In 2011 the historic organ was restored ( read about Trunch organ restoration) . Cloakroom facilities were installed in 2014.
