Songs of Praise from Swanage Bay

Posters have gone up in Swanage advertising a recording of BBC Songs of Praise.

Aled Jones is the host and the two hour recording on Thursday 29 July which will start in late afternoon at 5.30pm to catch the evening light.

The venue is Prince Albert Gardens, near the Pier, where the Albert Memorial has just been re-erected after being in storage for almost a century.

But the rising grass arena is probably best known for the huge pillars which until 1896 stood in London’s Regent Street where they were part of the Hanover Chapel on the Apple Store site.

The columns will make good television pictures with the sea behind.

Those wishing to take part, especially if associated with a church or choir, should contact [email protected]
