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.
