THE FRIENDS of Shakespeare’s Church are inviting residents to an open evening at Holy Trinity Church.
The event on Wednesday October 27 marks the start of its winter event programme and visitors can hear about the work which has taken place behind closed doors during the pandemic.
This includes projects to conserve and display the 1613 King James Bible and to restore the north transept – one of the oldest parts of the church.
Group chair Alan Haigh said: “This is the first public event we have been able hold for a long, long time and I do hope that our current and prospective members will come along and find out what we are planning and to see our new website, including a stunning virtual tour and new film. After a very quiet time, things are starting to get interesting. “
The Friends of Shakespeare’s Church is a registered charity dedicated to the preservation and restoration of Holy Trinity Church in which Shakespeare was both baptised and buried.
Doors open from 6pm and drinks are available on arrival.
All are welcome but places must be reserved by emailing email@example.com.
