The Heritage Open Weekend (12 Sep 2015 – 13 Sep 2015) was a busy time
The Heritage Open Weekend (12 Sep 2015 – 13 Sep 2015) was a busy time especially as the final rehearsals for the Tree of War were on at the same time! We welcomed 61 visitors who were guided around as much of the church as was accessible. Many were stunned by the colourful interior compared to the austere exterior.
Many people helped to staff the weekend but special thanks go to Mr Bevan Taylor who offered a comprehensive history of the church to visitors.
The weekend was a valuable opportunity to open the doors to so many people who have passed the church on many occasions and have wondered what it was like inside. It also demonstrated the community support St Nick’s gives to the musical, performing and visual arts. While at the same time it showed that this unique Grade 2* listed building requires ongoing maintenance. Thank you to everyone who supported this event and who helped once again to raise the profile of St Nicholas Church.
