Stained Glass Centre proud to host The Assembled for York Spring Festival

The Stained Glass Centre is proud to host the Assembled on Sunday 3rd May, as part of the York Spring Festival .

The Assembled are a group of experimental, collaborative musicians. They will be performing line/shadow, a series of performances developed specifically for the stunning St Martin-cum-Gregory Church. It presents an amazing opportunity to experience the Centre in a different way, exploring the resonance and light of the space.
