At 2.30 pm Dick Bolton will be welcomed back to the National Trust East Kent Association (NTEKA) to tell us of Mrs. Coade who from 1769 ran the country's most successful manufactory of artificial stone, supplying a wide range of decorative, commemorative and artificial items both large and small.

14th Mar (6.00pm-7.30pm): Music for Reflection

The Canterbury Singers, director Adrian Bawtree, in a programme bookended by a heartfelt English example of a Requiem consisting not of a setting of the Mass for the Dead, but a set of texts personally selected by the composer, Herbert Howells, and Tippett's ever popular Five Spirituals, which mark significant stages in his oratorio 'A Child of our Time'. Also included will be organ music by J S Bach, and settings of the communion-related text 'Ave, verum corpus' by Byrd, Dering, Mozart and the late Colin Mawby.
Prices: £10 in advance, £12 at the door
