As part of this special project, we will be running several interesting and accessible events which explore different aspects of the histories we discover during the PAST:PRESENT:FUTURE project.
Holy Trinity heritage tours
Led by trained Fabrica volunteers, these tours are free and open to all ages, starting in September 2019.

We will also launch the first of our new building tours – more details coming soon.
Traditional craft skills workshops
Led by experienced practitioners teaching heritage skills linked to the restoration of the building
Two workshops will take place in early 2020 and support a younger generation of students/makers to learn techniques that are hundreds of years old:
Stained Glass, led by David Lilly
Stone Carving, led by Geoff Aldred
We will also explore the skills that went into creating beautiful wood carvings for our church with our Men in Sheds project, in summer 2019 and 2020:
Wood Carving, led by Martin Brockman
Trinity Conversation events
