News stories from the Friends of Essex Churches Trust

A selection of art and silverware will be offered for sale in aid of the Friends of Essex Churches Trust on February 25 at historic Layer Marney Tower in splendid surroundings. 

The art will be on display in the Long Hall. 20% of sales will be donated to the Friends of Essex Churches Trust.

In a musical interlude the mezzo-soprano, Marina Abel Smith, will be performing operatic arias and jazz favourites accompanied by the pianist, Michael Heighway.

Rachel Grainger, the Chairman of our Events Committee, has issued a warm invitation to this special event:

“Enjoy an evening of art and music at Layer Marney Tower, the perfect antidote to the February gloom. We look forward to seeing you, and hope you will find a masterpiece to buy.”

We are very grateful to Nicholas and Sheila Charrington for generously allowing us to hold our event at their home. 

During the evening Nicholas will briefly recount the history of Layer Marney Tower.

Book now by clicking on our Events page from which you can download a booking form. Tickets will be issued at the door.
