Steeple Ashton’s Independence Day Frolic

A combined church organ concert and picnic in the Manor gardens on American Independence Day, in aid of the village’s church preservation trust.
Peter King, Bath Abbey organist acclaimed as “a virtuoso of world class standing” (BBC Radio 3 CD Review), will showcase American organ music during a concert on the recently re-built Bryceson & Ellis organ in St Mary’s Church at 6.30pm, followed by an open house, bring-your-own picnic at the adjacent 17th century Manor and its featured gardens.
Music by American composers from John Philip Sousa to Scott Joplin, from Dan Locklair to Arthur Foote, David N Johnson and Dudley Buck, will share the programme with 19th century European composers such as Brahms and Liszt contemporary with the time the St Mary’s organ was built. Included will be tunes played at the funeral of President Reagan (Locklair’s Rubrics) as well as the wedding of President Nixon’s daughter (Johnson’s Trumpet Tune). Sousa’s Washington Post and Liberty Bell will ring out alongside Joplin’s Rag, The Entertainer and Harmony Hall Waltz, together with variations on Buck’s tear-jerker, Home Sweet Home. The audience will be able to see the organist displayed on a large screen in the church.
This will be a return visit to Steeple Ashton for Peter King, who gave a recital in the church early last year when he expressed his delight in the quality of sound from the organ, one of the finest in Wiltshire.
Tickets for the combined organ concert (centre aisles) and entry to the Manor gardens, with a welcoming glass of fizz and, as befitting the American theme, apple pie and cream to close the evening, cost £20 each. Tickets for the concert alone (side aisles) are offered at £10 each.
Picnic tables and chairs will be available on a first-come basis and wine for sale will also be available. Picnic set up from 5.30pm onwards.

Last of the darling buds: Steeple Ashton Open Gardens

Every other year, the pretty Wiltshire village of Steeple Ashton opens up its many lovely gardens to all and sundry in aid of its church preservation trust.  Built with money from the 15th century cloth trade, the classical late Perpendicular church is much larger than might be expected for the size of the village and needs every penny of the £30,000 that has been raised in this way since the first event in 1999. The village is an attractive mix of architectural styles, including more than its fair share of listed properties, around a village green with a market cross and ancient overnight lock-up for miscreants on their way to the local assizes.  It also boasts a community owned and operated village shop.
Up to 15 gardens will take part this year, varying in size from several acres to more modest plots. A draw to join a conducted climb to the top of the 93ft tower of St Mary’s Church will be repeated this year. Three lucky winners and their partners will be rewarded with a glass of champagne and a spectacular view of the village and the surrounding countryside stretching out to the Salisbury plain. There will also be well stocked plant stalls and cream teas on the village green, a children’s competition and Open Gardens Pimms at the village pub, the Longs Arms. The 2013 event attracted over 800 people. Tickets cost £5 and all children will, as usual, be free.
