New for the winter months is a series, on five Tuesdays starting at 1 pm lunchtime, of short (up to 40 minutes with no interval) concerts with free admission, no tickets, cabaret style seating and a retiring collection.
The lunchtime concerts start on Tuesday 5 November with pianist Renata Konyicska. This will be followed on Tuesday 10 December by Sarah McKenna (violin) and Nao Maebayashi (piano). Full details of each programme is on the Cranleigh Arts website. The lunchtime series is being supported by Informed Choice Financial Planning.
Cranleigh Arts are inviting groups and societies, as well as individuals who do not like to be out after dark in winter, to come and enjoy professional performers. Do spread the word and do come yourselves; relax and enjoy!
