The St Nicholas charity concerts are one-hour recitals, which were originally set up to raise funds for Blood Cancer UK, formerly known as Bloodwise.  With a break due to covid restrictions, they began again in February 2022.  Please look at the concert page here to see what delights lie in store…

The concerts are held in the historic and warm church of St Nicholas, Bishop’s Sutton, Hampshire, early on (usually) Saturday evenings – think of each recital as a musical aperitif before you go home or out to dinner, possibly to The Ship pub in Bishop’s Sutton or into Alresford and beyond.

Tickets are priced at £10 each (an exception being the concert of Puccini arias on 12th May 2023, when they are £20), payable on the door, to include a welcoming drink.  (Cash please,  or cheques payable to St Nicholas Bloodwise Concerts)  They can be reserved by email at stnbconcerts@gmail.com – this is advisable in case you need to be alerted of any changes to the programme or Covid restrictions.  

There is only limited parking by the Church but you may use the village hall car park (situated on the main road).  Please do not park at The Ship unless you have reserved a table for dinner there for afterwards.
