On a chilly winter’s evening in early July, we were pleased to welcome The Secret Garden Sessions for a night of incredible music and entertainment. The organiser of the event, Dan Burrows, was struck by the awe-inspiring beauty and acoustics of our beautiful Church building and decided that it would be the perfect place to film a concert live on location.
Videographer Temara Heta, and visual media designer Toby from Double T Media, along with Howie, Nick and Blue Violet created a beautiful atmosphere to experience the music offered on the evening. We were pleased to welcome Ahlia Rain, a talented singer songwriter from the Newcastle area, and Lennie Tranter and The Bagism Revelation who describe themselves as being ‘a bit like Ziggy Stardust
meets the Beatles’.
Drummer Sam Smith said, “this is an incredible experience, we normally play in pubs and clubs so to be able to play music and be filmed performing in such a beautiful space is a great opportunity.” We were pleased to welcome a group of people who would not normally think about coming in to our church building.
