Joglaresa - The Scimitar and the Sword

Joglaresa, the leading medieval music ensemble, will be performing The Scimitar and the Sword, on Friday 8 September, 18:30-19:30, at St John's Church in Clerkenwell.

The Scimitar and the Sword presents a selection of Muslim, Jewish and Christian music from all sides of the Crusades - a very fitting accompaniment for a Military Orders conference! Entry is free for all conference delegates but, if you wish to invite friends, a limited number of tickets are available for the general public. See https://scimitarandsword.eventbrite.co.uk for details.
