St. James’ and St. Basil’s Church Fenham is a magnificent venue for music making and we are working hard to make the church a musical hub for our region. We have a number of concert series made up of Master Musicians, local Heroes, Jazz and Organ recitals. Information regarding these and our Choral Concerts can be found by following the diary link below.
Also known as Saturday Classics, showcases international artists of the highest quality in the North East of England. Piano, violin and guitar recitals are featured.
The local heroes concert series offers the opportunity to hear our region’s fine musicians.
In 2019 we featured two national poll winners. Alan Barnes won top place for alto sax in the British jazz awards and Zoe Gilby for best vocalist in the Parliamentary jazz awards!
Come and hear the stunning 1931 Walker Organ (restored David Wood, 2016) in this glorious church. Recognised as a masterpiece in the Arts and Crafts movement.
