Open Evening in the Tower @ St. Marys Church, Hitchin Street, SG7 5AE
May 9 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

St Mary’s Church Tower. 7.30-9.00pm. Meeting by Peter’s Door at the foot of the tower to the left of the main door.

If you have ever fancied having a go at bell-ringing or wondered how it was done, this evening will give you the chance to find out. Access is fairly challenging—there are 44 worn steps in the spiral staircase, so appropriate footwear should be worn. No previous bell-ring experience is necessary.

Because the space is small, tickets are limited to 12. There is no charge but you must pick up a ticket from the Community Centre.

Traditional Home cooked Buffet night @ Bombay Bistro, Bell Row, SG7 6AP
May 15 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Two sittings: 6.00pm to 8.00pm and 8.00pm to 10:00pm

Indian food is cooked a little differently at home where there is less of a time restriction opposed to in a restaurant where lots of different dishes need to be produced to a tight time frame.

At home food is usually cooked in a hotpot and left to simmer over an extended period to allow all the juices of the meats and vegetables to remain in the sauce and fuse together to create some great flavours.

On this special night we will be serving these dishes as a buffet so you can try a variety of dishes.

There will be a good selection of vegetarian dishes too.

Book your tickets now and we look forward to seeing you on the night.

As normal get in early to be seated in a group otherwise you could making new friends.

Brass Band Concert @ United Reform Church, Whitehorse Street, SG7 6QQ
May 15 @ 7:30 pm

Refreshments will be served in the interval.

French Cuisine and Wine at its Finest! @ The White Lion, High Street, Baldock
May 15 @ 7:30 pm

The White Lion is pleased to present a tasting evening of fine French cuisine with matched wines. The evening will be run as a tasting evening where our local French chef will create and discuss a range of contemporary and classic meat, fish and vegetarian small plates which will be tasted, and savoured, by the guests. The food flavours and tastes will be perfectly matched and blended as guests sample a range of complementary, classic and new French wines. This is an evening not to be missed and a first for the Baldock Festival. Please state when booking if you are vegetarian.
