525 LIVE

Between 19th-23rd November 2019 we will be staging an inspiring theatrical and dramatic multimedia event in Monken Hadley Church – 525 LIVE. This is to celebrate the 525th Anniversary of the Restoration of the Church in 1494 and raise money for the Church House Hall Restoration fund. We will also be supporting Noah's Ark Children's Hospice.

Bringing together dramatic lighting, music, video and live theatre into a stunning ‘Son et Lumiere’, we will be telling the story of the history and heritage of the church and the local community of Barnet, Monken Hadley and Hadley Wood.

Work is already underway to create and produce the event – planning, script writing and filming – and will continue throughout the spring and summer. A team of world-class creative and technical professionals from the church and locality will show the variety of our community – its history through to the present day – working with our school and local groups.

There will be six performances – five in the evening (between 7.30 to 9.30pm Tuesday to Friday), as well as a Saturday matinee. Drinks will be available in Church House Hall 45 minutes before each performance, where you will be able to view the proposed plans for the Hall’s restoration. On Saturday evening at 8pm there will be a Gala performance, preceded by a Champagne reception at 7.15pm, and followed by a ceremonial lighting of the church beacon.

Tickets will be priced at £20 for adults, £15 for children (16 years or under). Gala performance tickets will be priced at £25 for adults, £20 for children. There will also be a family ticket for £55 – two adults and two children, excluding the Gala performance. Tickets will go on sale online from 11th July from www.ticketsource.co.uk/525-live (booking fee applies). You can also book tickets by phoning 0333 666 3366 (for which there is an additional £1.75 service fee).
