Currently all events are on hold due to Covid-19 restrictions, but future plans will include the inauguration of the new bells.

We are always on the lookout for new ideas and helpers, so if you would like to take part please contact us.


We organise a varied programme of events all year round, with four or five fund-raising socials every years for members and guests, such as open gardens around the village; tasting evenings of wine, gin and sherry; cosy suppers in the Malt House opposite the church; formal balls; themed dinners; and summer jazz afternoons on the lawn.

We also hold a service of Nine Lessons and Carols on the Sunday before Christmas and in the summer a festival evensong with eminent visiting preachers.

Everyone is welcome to Friends of St Mary’s events, including non-members, but if you are a member, you will receive a discount on your ticket to every event – another great reason to join!

From cosy suppers in the Malt House (opposite the church)…
…to formal balls such as the Waterloo 200 in the opulent setting of Westonbirt School
From lazy summertime Jazz on the Lawn, now an annual summer tradition…
… to a warming winter Curry Night in the village hall
