Bach by Candlelight in Acocks Green

Kimichi School who opened their doors in 2013 are enlivening the musical culture of Acocks Green with the development of a community choir, music workshops and concerts. They are a very welcome asset to our area. It is also great to see life being breathed back into the well-preserved Eastbourne House, built in 1858. It has been a school since 1948 and the word on the street is that Nigel Mansell CBE is a former pupil (Have any other locals heard this?) It closed as a private Infant and Junior school in 2007 and was worryingly empty until Kimichi School purchased it and opened it as a school for children 11+ with a passion for music.

The school were also very pleased to find the beautiful St Mary’s Church in easy walking distance from the school and so a perfect venue to put on concerts. Everyone is invited along to their first concert of the well known Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos by candlelit. Tickets are available on the door (children are free!) takings go towards the upkeep and promotion of the school. candlelight bach

    Apparently the drummer from Mott The Hoople went to Eastbourne House.
