The Bishop of Lynn, The Right Revd. Jonathan Meyrick, is very much loved in North Norfolk. He visited the aria many times, and apart for his servise as the Bishop, he is very well known for his wonderful performances of rock classics. His 2013 CD album included Wild Thing, Satisfaction (I Can’t Get No), Nights In White Satin, I’m A Believer, Words, Happy Together, I Can’t Control Myself and much more.
As The Rocking Bishop with huge success The Right Revd. Jonathan Meyrick performed at St Nicholas in Swafield in August 2017. Two years later the ROCKING BISHOP returned back at Swafield with the collection of 1960’s hits, and the enthusiastic audience sang along again and danced in the aisle. All takings from that concert went to conservation and restoration projects at St Nicholas and St Botolph’s. On the very next day after the concert bishop Jonathan addressed the congregation at Norwich Cathedral from the top of the 50ft helter skelter (part of Seeing It Differently project). At the end of his sermon from the helter skelter the bichop repited the song wich he performed at St. Nicholas in Swafield:
“Worlds” by Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb
A smile can bring you near to me
Don’t ever let me find you gone
‘Cause that would bring a tear to me
Let’s start a brand new story
Now my love, right now
There’ll be no other time
And I can show you how, my love
And dedicate them all to me
And I will give you all my life
I’m here if you should call to me
A single word I say
To take your heart away
Cutting the Mustard is a very popular Norfolk band from Sheringham. Lead singer Tina Blaber-Wegg, Brian Eade and Ervin Munir will bring you their blend of harmonies, piano, bass, percussion and acoustic guitar. The band mixes old and new music with skilled musicianship, harmonies and stunning energy. The band performs songs that range from the 1940’s to the present-day. Cutting the Mustard regularly performs in Sheringham, Cromer, North Walsham, East Runton and the local areas.
St Nicholas’ church sits in splendid isolation over a half mile to the South of Trunch, and surrounded by arable fields. The western tower has the earliest portions of this church, Pevsner dates that piece to the late 13th century or early 14th century.
