PLANS are well underway for the first Sparsholt Music village concert on Sunday August 15 at 3pm at the village hall, subject to the lifting of lockdown restrictions.

The performers are set to include Mark and Fiona Zarb-Adami from the village; Ashton Gray who runs the Old Vine pub in Winchester and also teaches the piano to some villagers; Tim Morris, professor of Physics at Southampton University and Gilly Slot a local piano teacher.

Also planned to perform are Fiona Zarb-Adami’s daughter Maria who will be going to study singing at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire from September and her son Nick Willsher who is currently studying jazz saxophone, piano and composition at the Royal Academy of Music.

Proceeds will be used to support the village.

Tickets are £5 and are available in advance from August.
