ALL Saints' Church in Clevedon is celebrating its 150th birthday with some special events this week.

On Friday at 6pm, a Choral Evensong will be held at the All Saints Lane church, with a programme of music to reflect 150 years of choral tradition.

On Saturday, there will be a church open day from 10am-5pm with a flower festival organised in partnership with Clevedon Flower Guild.

Visitors can also view a photography exhibition featuring pictures by Andrew Jackson, who was commissioned for the church’s 150th celebrations, as well as a display of old photos and memorabilia connected with the church over the last 150 years.

At 7.30pm on Saturday, there will be a special concert featuring award-winning 14-year-old violinist Julia Hwang performing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto and Bristol Classical Players performing Beethoven’s Symphony No 1.

Those wanting to attend can just turn up and there will be a collection for the musicians.

On Sunday at 10.30am, there will be a special celebration service with Right Reverend Peter Price, Bishop of Bath and Wells.

All Saints’ Church rector Noel Hector said: “Over the weekend there is a wide array of events and activities involving people from our local community and beyond and we very much hope that people will join us in our celebrations.”
