Charity to hold summer festival in Harrow to celebrate 35th anniversary

A local charity is to hold a special summer festival in Harrow to celebrate it’s 35th birthday, and they are inviting residents to come along to help them celebrate.

Incredibly, the 35th anniversary of St Luke’s Hospice is upon us and to mark the special occasion, the charity is holding a series of events in Harrow, including the festival.

A spokesperson for St Luke’s said: “It is quite incredible to look back on our humble beginnings and reflect on the milestones that have brought us to where we are today.

“To celebrate that journey together with the community that has always been by our side, there will be a mini summer festival in a marquee at the St Luke’s garden in front of Kenton Grange, this July, with two musical events for the public to attend. Tickets are available now.”

The two special musical events will include –

An Evening of Celebration with Harrow Gospel Choir – Saturday 2 July, 7:30pm.

Harrow Community Gospel Choir is a performing choir singing an uplifting mixture of contemporary gospel songs and spirituals, directed by CeCelia Wickham-Anderson. They will be at the hospice on Saturday 2nd July. Tickets are priced at £12 for adults, £10 for children and can be purchased via the St Luke’s website. There will be a Bar available for refreshments, performance will start at 7:30pm.

All things Irish – an afternoon of acoustic music, Guinness and Irish treats – Sunday 3 July, 1:30pm.

Ronan (lead singer from the London Irish band Biblecode Sundays) and Fionnghuala will be performing a selection of Irish acoustic tunes at the hospice. St Luke’s will be serving a range of Irish treats including Irish coffees, Guinness and Taytos! Doors will open at 1.30pm with Ronan and Fionnghulala’s performance beginning at 2pm. Tickets are £10 each and there will be a bar and raffle on the day. Tickets can be purchased here.

The charity said is a pleasure for the hospice to be able to invite the community into the grounds again and we cannot wait to welcome you. All proceeds from ticket sales will go towards St Luke’s fundraising which pays for the care of 6 out of 10 patients.
