Heritage Open Day:  Took place on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September 2013.

 


The Church of St Mary Magdalene, is situated in the little village of Caldecote, near Baldock, was open over the weekend of 14th/15th September.

Clare Finnimore, Principal Viola with the Britten Sinfonia, (Google for more details) who is a member of Caldecote Friends Committee and lives in the village, had persuaded a number of her professional classical and jazz musician friends to take part in a 'Live Music Marathon' in order to raise money to help pay for desperately needed church tower repairs costing £20000.
They were busking in the church from 3.00pm until midnight (By candlelight!) on Saturday, and 1.00pm until 5.00pm on Sunday.

Visitors made a donation to the Church Tower Fund.

A wonderful time was had by all who were involved, and over £1500.00 was raised for the tower repair fund.
