Singer and ukelele-player Frankie Simpkins, known for local community work in care homes and hospitals, joins us for her debut Tune@Noon performance. She has been working in the care community for many years, and has developed a fabulous repertoire of material. Accompanying her is WRM favourite Peter French, who gave two stunning concerts for us last year, and may have a surprise or two up his sleeve too.
For the first time since its inception, this Tune@Noon will be going online, due to the restrictions around the coronavirus crisis. In an effort to reach out to small businesses in our local community, we initially joined forces with Stage Door Cafe in Trowbridge for this event. This was conceived as a Musical Theatre cafe by proprietor Jules Mortimer, who also hosted a 'Golden Years' event to help combat loneliness last winter. By working together we make our community stronger, so please support us by going onine to enjoy the event, and listen to wonderful music from the comfort of your own homes.
Tickets FREE (including as much tea, coffee and cake as you have in the house!)
Lucy Hewson and Rebecca Prosser are classical musicians with a passion for sharing the music they love to perform.

Multi-talented, Rebecca also plays the violin and piano.
Lucy is a violinist (and occasional viola player) who loves to explore all varieties of music: from classical to folk and rock to opera. Her job
has taken her across the Atlantic on the QE2, into the recording studio with Robbie Williams and across America with a touring opera, as well as all over the UK playing with orchestras and chamber groups.
Lucy and Rebecca regularly work together and are particularly dedicated to their voluntary work, playing music at the Peggy Dodd Centre, to clients with dementia.
