Welcome to
St Mary the Virgin, Hambleden

Music

Music, to many, is a gateway that joins the earthly and the eternal. Music has a special place in both Frieth and Hambleden churches.  In them our landscape, architecture and music meet in peculiarly English harmony.

The ancient parish church has a strong choral tradition. Some of the twenty-strong choir sing at every 11am Eucharist each Sunday. New younger members are needed.

Hambleden Concerts

Great music is presented to us through a series of excellent summertime Saturday evening  concerts in church at which wonderful orchestras and musicians fill the church with classical music of the highest quality. Many concerts are sell outs. Tickets are available from the village shop, on the door, or in advance. The concerts are aided by the Friends of Hambleden Concerts an expanding group of supporters who donate financially and who get the best seats.
