Winchelsea Arts is a voluntary group which organises concerts of classical music that are held at St Thomas’ Church in Winchelsea.
A series of six concerts in the historic Sussex church of St Thomas the Martyr, Winchelsea.
The Ancient Town of Winchelsea, part of the Cinque Port Confederation, is an historical, architectural and environmental gem; set on a hill overlooking Romney Marsh and the English Channel, protected by its status as a conservation area, yet easily accessible by the motor car and public transport. For some two centuries, the town has been a magnet for writers, artists and musicians, drawn by its charm, peace and inspiration. Central to these qualities and geographically central to the Town itself is the Church of St Thomas the Martyr.
This Church, of which only the choir nave remains of a much more extensive early 14th century structure, contains magnificent monuments, a unique collection of stained glass windows by Douglas Strachan and features excellent acoustics.
These attributes make the Church a perfect venue for concerts.
