The Speakeasy Returns

Speakeasy 7 e-flyer

Here at St Luke’s, we love a party. We’re also blessed with some amazingly talented people in our congregation, from singers and musicians, to actors and comedy writers. Our yearly Speakeasy is an opportunity to be entertained by the best of the church’s talent – and to enjoy a great social evening and a singalong, too.

The Speakeasy is conceived and created by Crispin Holland, who promises us a night that is: ‘Mildly diverting, slightly amusing, marginally better than sitting at home on your own’! On past form, it’ll be a lot more than that!

So, what can you expect from a St Luke’s Speakeasy? First, you’ll walk into the church to find it’s been transformed into a twinkling candlelit cafe, with the stage set for the show. There’ll be a bar in the kitchen, and nibbles to snack on while you relax among friends and enjoy some top-class musical performances, sketches, cabaret acts and a few surprise moments. Plus there’ll be a house band to lead a singalong we can all join in with. Crispin will, as usual, be our master of ceremonies.

So put the next Speakeasy – our seventh – in your diary for Friday 17 October, 8pm-11.30pm. Tickets cost £5, or £2 concessions, and the event is only open to those aged 16+ (no exceptions). As well as a chance for us all to get together and have some fun, it’s also a great opportunity to invite friends, family and neighbours along for a relaxed evening out. So get your gladrags on, brush up your vocal cords and get ready for a great night at St Luke’s!

Welcome evening at St Luke’s – and you’re invited!

St Luke’s is a fast-growing church, and although we endeavour to be friendly and welcoming, it can sometimes be easy for newcomers to get lost in the crowd, and to struggle to get to know people. During our after-service coffee time, new folk – or indeed, anyone who wants to get to know others – [...]
