The Friends of All Saints Invite you to Sing for your Supper

Come along to All Saints’ Church on 18th June for a very special evening of music, food and camaraderie!

The Friends of All Saints are delighted to present a musical soiree, led by local resident and professional musician Stephen Higgins, joined by some of his friends and colleagues. The past couple of years have been tough for all of us, and what better way to banish the Covid blues than to assemble together, share food, wine and company, and above all to SING together again? Stephen and his special guests will lead you through some much-loved songs – ranging from Gilbert and Sullivan, music from the war period, popular classics and maybe even some Last Night of the Proms classics!

No previous singing experience is required – only a wish to join together as a community and help to fundraise to help preserve this beautiful church and its grounds for all of us to enjoy.

Tickets are just £10 – to include delicious canapés, and there will be a licensed bar all evening serving wine and soft drinks.

For more information, or to book your place, please email Val Wallis at valwallis1@btinternet.com or pop into either Made by Kent or Stamps coffee shop in the village to buy a ticket.

When they are gone, they are gone! So don’t miss out and reserve your place today.

All Saints’ Church Staplehurst Kent, stands on the top of the hill in the centre of the village and is often referred to as the “Church on the hill”.

The Church is at the south end of the village just a short walk off the A229, a Roman road that forms the main high street. It dates from the early part of the last Millennium; the south door has been dated to around 1050 and displays some very fine early ironwork on it.

The church is said to have been built around 1100. It served the farms which evolved from dens or pasture land used by herdsmen from the area around Maidstone. It is older than the village.

The name Staplehurst was first recorded in 1226, although specific dens such as Spilsill and Aydhurst are mentioned in Anglo-Saxon charters.
