A weekend of events to celebrate the work of Llandudno lifeboat is taking place from 23rd – 25th June.
St Paul’s Church in Craig y Don will be hosting two fundraising concerts and a service to recognise the service which RNLI Llandudno provides.
The events have been organised because the Craig y Don area of Llandudno is the location for the town’s new lifeboat station, which is due to be completed very soon.
Rev Noel Carter, rector at St Paul’s Church Craig-y-Don, said: “the lifeboat crews are very much a part of the community, local people who give their time to keep the service going. It’s a privilege to be able to give them some recognition and support for the hard work they do.”
The celebration begins at 7.30pm on Friday 23rd June with a brass band concert by the Holywell Band, one of the best known brass bands in North Wales, playing music from Abba to the Great Escape.
On Saturday 24th June at 7.30pm, the Amici Del Canto choir present the dramatic opera “King Arthur” by Henry Purcell, a rare chance to hear this unusual work. It includes the famous “frost scene” where singers wobble their voices as if they are freezing.
Finally, on Sunday 25th June at 5pm, a British musical tradition is being revived in Llandudno. Choral evensong is a church service which is almost entirely sung, and people are invited to simply listen to the music and reflect. The service also celebrates the feast of St Paul, and will include a short talk on the man and his life.
Admission is free to all events with collection for Llandudno RNLI. Light refreshments will be served at all three events.
