“Songs for a Late Summer’s Evening” with Mhairi Lawson & Elizabeth Kenny

Saturday 7th September 2019

Robertsbridge Abbey Undercroft

On Saturday 7th September we have Soprano (and ex-Robertsbridge resident) Mhairi Lawson, accompanied by Elizabeth Kenny on the Lute, performing at the Robertsbridge Abbey Undercroft.

The Undercroft is part of a private house, and it’s thanks to the generosity of owners Catherine and Nigel that we’re able to use this unique and magical venue. This event will be a fundraiser, with the profit to be split between RAP and the Abbey owners’ charity the East Sussex Motor Neurone Disease Association.

The evening will start at 6.30pm with drinks and canapes in the garden, followed by the concert in the Undercroft at 7pm.

The concert will last approximately an hour, and there will be the opportunity to ask Mhairi and Liz questions afterwards.

Tickets £37.50, with priority booking for RAP members, on sale now. We have done a couple of events before in the Undercroft and these are always extremely popular, so please don’t miss out!

Contact us direct to book, or with any queries or questions.
