Last week, Fabrica (formerly Holy Trinity Church) launched their first ever heritage tours of the building. Following a summer of training from local historian and researcher Jackie Marsh-Hobbs, the tours were led by Fabrica volunteers who had previously taken an interest in the building’s history. The training enabled the volunteers to get to grips with two hundred years of the church’s narrative, as well as learn tour-guiding techniques from an expert in the field.
Alongside the heritage tours, Fabrica also collaborated with Strike a Light to host two hundred, local primary school children for a series of workshops run by Nicola Benge. Beginning with a discussion about the stained glass in the church, Nicola led the children in making their own faux stained glass piece to take home.
Both the tours and the workshops were well attended and we look forward to hosting more tours in the autumn! Details will be posted on Fabrica’s website.
