Songs of Praise at Rushen Abbey 8 July 2010

On Sunday 11th July join Manx National Heritage at Rushen Abbey and enjoy the sounds of choral music at the annual Songs of Praise service in the Abbey Gardens.

The service begins at 2.30pm and visitors will be invited to join in with the well-known hymns performed by the Meadowside Choir, with an accompanying dance display provided by Ballasalla Dance Group ‘Academy of Dance’.

Howard Parkin, Public Services Manager for Manx National Heritage said:

“2010 is the tenth consecutive year that Manx National Heritage and Churches Together in Mann have organised the summer service at Rushen Abbey. Visitors are welcome to join in the service, bring a picnic to enjoy in the beautiful Abbey gardens, or enjoy the newly opened Abbey Restaurant, which is situated adjacent to Rushen Abbey”.

For their comfort visitors are advised to bring seating or blankets with their picnics. In case of wet weather the service will be conducted at the Abbey Church, Ballasalla, approximately 100 yards away from Rushen Abbey. Admission to the service is free of charge.

Ample car parking is available at Rushen Abbey, which is also only a short walk away from Ballasalla station and bus stops. Ballasalla is regularly served by the Isle of Man Steam Railway and regular bus services including the 1, 1C, 2, 8 and X2 buses.
