Rushmoor Odd Fellows entertain - Fri 27 Sep 2019 at 2:00 pm
Venue: St James' Priory, Bristol
CONCERT AT THE OLDEST BUILDING IN BRISTOL!
ST JAMES’ PRIORY
ON THE AFTERNOON OF FRIDAY 27 SEPTEMBER 2019, 2pm
The atmospherically acoustic twelfth century church will ring again to the magic of the Rushmoor Odd Fellows as they entertain in their own inimitable style. Who needs the bright lights of London’s West End!? For one afternoon in Bristol sit back and let us bring the world of entertainment to you!
Robert Fitzroy, Earl of Gloucester and grandson of William the Conqueror, founded the Priory of St James in 1129. It has survived civil war and the ministrations of Henry VIII. In the medieval period the priory was home to a community of Benedictine monks who cared for the poor and the sick. This link is currently maintained by Benedictine Abbot David Charlesworth OSB.
Today St James Priory performs a vital role as a place of Healing and support for people dealing with mental health issues and others in recovery from addiction. Among the people providing this service to the community are John and Susan Jotcham MBE, ably assisted by Support Coordinator Sean Dennedy.
It is not a parish church so has no income from a church congregation. Funds raised from events like this are therefore extremely important. We enjoy Entertaining You, you will enjoy what we do – what could possibly go wrong!?

THE RUSHMOOR ODD FELLOWS MALE VOICE CHOIR
The choir, led by their talented internationally acclaimed MD and tenor soloist Stephen Petch, continues their short tour of Devon with an evening concert at Buckfast Abbey with Guest Choir “The Riviera Singers” from Brixham on Saturday 28 September. This is to be followed by a concert in aid of the Army Benevolent Fund on Sunday 29 September at Ugbrooke House in Newton Abbot. They plan to bow out with a FLASH performance at an as yet “Secret” location in Exeter!!
The choir may be contacted through Major Mike Charlesworth BEM on 01252-418-270 or by email at:
What’s this!? The Army coming to the aid of the Church with Major Mike taking the stalwarts of the Odd Fellows all the way from leafy Hampshire on a daring raid into the wilds of Devon to help his cousin the Abbot! The choir was formed in 1960 to sing at the Aldershot Music Festival. Their ethos is to raise money for worthy charities and to have fun doing it! Are the Buckfast monks ready for this!? But the choir are not just “pot hunters” and came a creditable third in the Welsh National Eisteddfod as well as success in the Portsmouth Music Festival. So don’t miss the opportunity – raise funds for worthy causes and and have fun doing it!!
Tickets only £10 to all concerts - available on the door - you know it makes sense!
