DURING the summer there have been a series of recital concerts in St Laurence Church in Ludlow.

These have taken place on Saturday lunchtimes and one of the performers was John Vaughan.

St Laurence Church has been establishing itself as a centre for lovers of good music.

There was a festival of classical music in the Church alongside the Fringe Festival in June.

Shaun Ward is the man behind the classical music performances at the Church that is not only a place of worship but also a community facility. The performers during the classical music festival included the world famous King Singers. St Laurence Church is also home to a very special piano. It is not just any old piano but a £60,000 Steinway D. The piano was part of Steinway’s hire fleet but has been completely restored.
