This special evening is being presented as a celebration of Maggie Cole who was  a loyal and longtime supporter of Luton Music.


Thanks to Maggie's generosity we are able to offer this candlelit concert free to anyone who would enjoy such an evening in Luton's most beautiful church - all will be most welcome.  There will be a retiring collection, the proceeds of which will be donated to the Keech Hospice.  This will be a heart-warming event celebrating a much loved member of our concert-going community, whom we will all remember with so much affection.
