Bombed during World War II, St George’s Garrison Church survives as an evocative ruin with recently conserved mosaics, and a modern canopy roof, now available for all to enjoy.


Ali Mac Gig Postponed

Ali Mac Band - The Bird Returns! has been postponed.

Here's some essential information about this change.

This is because of Public Health concerns, the provisions of HM Government's 3 step plan and statutory Regulations all of which prevent a safe event taking place on 6th June - when we do stage the gig we are looking forward to a good time, dancing, food and drink, with ticketholders able to travel from across the country and stay overnight...

We cannot arrange a new date until it is sensible to do so and will update information in due course. If not by the Autumn the new date will best be in Spring / early Summer 2021 because the venue is in the open air and we don't wish to be cold!

No new date has been arranged - we have to stipulate a nominal date to keep the event live on the Eventbrite website so for now please ignore reference to Saturday 8th May 2021. The real new date will be notified.

Getting a refund

We can refund ticketholders if they wish; we would rather they keep the ticket(s) and see whether they can come to the new date when it is arranged.

Check for updates

We'll post information again when we have more news. Ali Mac is well and sends his love.

Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you at our future event. Meantime St George's may re-open so do visit when that's possible.

Be well,

With best wishes from all at St George's.
