Hops and Glory is part of the C.S Lewis Festival.
C.S. Lewis had an uneasy relationship with hymns, considering them to be “fifth-rate poems set to sixth-rate music.” Nevertheless, he saw their merit in bringing together people of different outlooks and education. There is a grand tradition within the Christian church of bringing together hymn-singing and pub culture. Come along for an evening of communal hymn-singing, compered by the Reverend Adrian McCartney and featuring The Bright Hour band. Bring a friend and bring your voices!
All proceeds go to The Larder food bank at St Christopher’s Church.
