Stokebourne Midsummer Festival

We are thrilled to invite everyone to revel in glorious music, joyous singing and comic poetry as Chorus of Dissent present their very first summer festival in the lovely green space that is St Matthias vicarage garden. Come and enjoy food and drink, and be entertained by all kinds of midsummer madness.

It’s all in aid of the vital rewiring and relighting work without which the magnificent St Matthias Church – Stokey’s only Grade I-listed building – could close. So dig deep into your pockets, and enjoy a cracking night out.
