JIM CARR

EVENTS COMMITTEE MEMBER

I was originally part of the team at Mackman that built the St Peter’s website, but was invited by fellow volunteers to become a member of the Events Committee due to my experience of playing in bands! I currently play in a Suffolk-based band called Cassette Dog.

Due to having my own gigs to play, I’m not always the most available member of the team, but at St Peter’s you can commit to as much or as little time as suits your lifestyle. I’m always happy to help set gear and staging up, and am looking forward to being able to support the team in different ways in the future.

What made you decide to get involved with St Peter’s?

Being involved with St Peter’s seemed like an obvious way to get more involved in something that I’m already passionate about – live music – plus it’s a really good opportunity to meet loads of different people with the same passion.


“IT’S GREAT TO HEAR ACTS BEING ABLE TO FILL THE SPACE WITH SOUND.”


What’s the best thing about being involved?

The best thing about being involved is getting to attend events that I wouldn’t normally go to and being able to have an impact on future events.

What would you say to someone who’d like to get involved?

Definitely get involved, however you can. There are loads of skills that St Peter’s would benefit from, so don’t sit there thinking “They probably don’t need me…”, get in touch and see where you end up.

What is your favourite fact about St Peter’s?

Being a church building means that St Peter’s has great acoustics. It’s great to hear acts being able to fill the space with sound without having to rely on huge PA systems, and without losing the intimacy of the event.
