Acclaimed jazz singer Gabrielle Ducomble brings her inimitable blend of French chanson, tango and bossa to the atmospheric setting of St John’s Church for this year’s much-needed Christmas Concert .
Featuring original songs from her latest album, Across the Bridge, interspersed with her own unique takes on classic chansons by Piaf, Legrand, Brel and Piazzolla, and influenced by travel and timeless storytelling, Gabrielle takes you on a rich musical journey from the Indonesian rainforest to partying Brazil and the streets of Paris, mixing samba, waltz, hot club-style jazz and African rhythm.
With a wonderful band including guitar virtuoso Nicolas Meier and the outstanding Richard Jones on jazz violin, and Saleem Raman on drums, expect an evening of beautiful melody, inspired musicianship and infectious joie de vivre.
Seating will be in social bubbles, 2m distanced, and there are a limited number of tickets available.

Finding Us / Parking / Rail Travel…..
St. John’s Church was built over 160 years ago and was extensively refurbished in 2012 with new seating, flooring and lighting. It has wonderful acoustics for all types of music as well as a unique atmosphere – described by some as Surrey’s own Union Chapel.
Situated in St. John’s Street right in the centre of the village just opposite the Co-op store, there are PUBLIC CAR PARKS within 5 minutes walk of the venue. We’d recommend parking in Meadrow (GU7 3HY), just off the A3100, the Guildford-Godalming road. It’s free in the evenings and it’s a short walk from the car park up Church Path , direct to the church.
There are also car parks in Station Road (GU7 3NF) and North Street (GU7 3HE)
Farncombe railway station is just 2 minutes walk from the venue. For rail travellers, Farncombe is on the London Waterloo – Portsmouth mainline. Trains are regular and journey times are London – 40 minutes and Portsmouth – 1 hour
