About the venue

St Margaret's Church, in its original form, dates back as far as 1465. The only Medieval part of the building that remains now, however, is the West end stone Tower. The rest of the building, constructed in the late 19th Century, provides an impressive and warm space beautifully suited to the Bach to Baby experience. Come and feel special, enjoying our concert in beautiful surroundings overlooking the Esplanade and if the weather allows, continue the fun and socialising after the concert in the lovely garden with a lunchtime picnic.
