The director of music of St Margaret’s Church in Ilkley, Christopher Rathbone, will be pulling out the stops – literally!– tomorrow when he gives his first monthly Friday recital of the year at 12.30pm. It will be a complete performance of Widor’s 5th Symphony.

The church’s recent Christmas Swingalong concert raised £657 for St Margaret’s Development Fund. The concert was put on in partnership with Ilkley Grammar School and featured the school’s swing band as well as the church’s Cant & Dec, St Margaret’s Senior Girls’ Choir and Ilkley Singers.
