There is a tradition of good music at St Nicholas on Dyke Road and a series of lunchtime recitals are held in the Church every Wednesday at 12:30pm, lasting for 45 minutes. A minimum donation of £3.00 towards recital expenses is appreciated.

The recitals provide a perfect break to have lunch and relax before heading back to work, or a perfect addition to a leisurely day. You can take your own sandwiches and tea and coffee is available for a donation.
