Our event at Ancre Hill Estates

13 July 2017

The sun shone in Monmouth for our fundraising event in partnership with Ancre Hill Estates, on Sunday 2 July. The event was to raise money for the work we do with special schools in Wales through weekly sessions with pupils, encouraging them to access and appreciate music in a relaxed environment.

Set in the beautiful grounds of the Ancre Hill Vineyard, the event brought together Ancre Hill Estates, Welsh Michelin Star chef Roger Jones of The Harrow at Little Bedwyn, and Monmouth-based Mandarin Stone who sponsored the event.

The afternoon began with an Ancre Hill sparkling rosé reception, followed by a six-course gourmet meal produced by Roger Jones. Intertwined throughout the event was music from singers Rebecca Afonwy-Jones and Gary Griffiths. The event culminated with a fundraising auction which included a limited edition signed linocut print from Sir Kyffin Williams and a unique ‘Day to Remember’ with WNO and James Sommerin Restaurant, both kindly donated.
