The Church of St Peter Great Berkhamsted

Cowper Society

The Cowper Society manages the cultural events that take place in St Peter’s Church and the neighbouring courthouse, providing a significant contribution to the cultural life of Berkhamsted.

The group is responsible for a wide-ranging programme of musical events, including lunchtime piano recitals, organ recitals and large-scale concerts by local groups such as the Berkhamsted Choral Society and Bridgewater Sinfonia. It also schedules the Winter Talks, a programme of fascinating and informative presentations by speakers on a wide range of topics.

Behind the scenes, the Cowper Society liaises with guest artists and soloists, attracting internationally acclaimed talent to Berkhamsted, and manages the logistics of putting on events in St Peter’s, including stage equipment, lighting and seating.
