Benefice news and fellowship/fundraising events



The Daytones are a men’s barbershop chorus who sing in four-part
close harmony; don’t think of striped blazers and straw boaters, just of
a group of great guys who enjoy singing and entertaining others!

Based in nearby Clifford, their repertoire includes a range of traditional
songs and popular material. They may include numbers made famous
by The Beatles, Abba, Ricky Nelson or Jimmy Cliff, as well as songs from
shows like The Lion King, Chicago or Porgy and Bess; you are as likely
to hear a Maori love-song as a rock-and-roll number, all held together
with some humorous banter from their Master of Ceremonies!

Our own Steve West, one of the Readers in our Benefice, took over as
their Chorus Director at the beginning of 2022.

Come along and enjoy an entertaining evening in their company at St
Mary’s Church, Tadcaster on Friday 30 th September at 7.00pm.
Cheese and wine included in the ticket price of £7.50 each. Available
online at:

or pay on the door.



Following the postponement of the Tadmaster Pop Quiz due to the passing of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, this event has been rearranged to take place on Friday 28th October at 7.30 PM, so you don’t have long to wait!

Compete to be Tadcaster Pop Master and attempt to overthrow the current Tadcaster Pop Master

champions Allens Ironmongers. Individual entries or teams of up to six people are allowed.

After the success of the inaugural event in May 2019 the quiz returns with the same format you know and love, with video clips, spot the intros, and pop music questions, all on St Mary's state-of-the-art audiovisual system!

Do you know your Dean Martin from your Chris Martin? And your Prince from your Queen?!

A Fun night guaranteed, hosted by Tadcaster’s answer to the Brucemeister and produced and presented by Jonathan the Music Man Craig. Entry is £7 per person and includes a drink and nibbles.

This is an event not to be missed and we expect it to be busy so grab your tickets below or arrive early to pay on the door.

Be there or be square!

After a 2-year gap because of COVID, Rainbow Through the Rain returns on the third Tuesday of each month from 2 pm - 3.30 pm, meeting in the Old Sunday School, Tadcaster.

This group is for anyone who has been bereaved, recently or longer ago, and who just wants to have a safe space to meet with others who may understand something of how you are feeling. We don't offer counselling, but we do offer a friendly face and a listening ear, plus tea & coffee!

It isn't a sad space - rather one of support and laughter. And, if you wish, there is always time to take a moment of quiet and light a candle.
