Fun and frolics at St Lawrence’s Church

Evesham Editorial 24th Jul, 2017 Updated: 24th Jul, 2017   0

VALE youngsters can uncover curious creatures roaming the ancient church of St Lawrence’s in the heart of Evesham.

The free family event takes place between 11am and 3pm on Wednesday, July 26 and is part of Church Tourism Week – a nationwide celebration of innovative events in historic churches.

Families can drop in throughout the day and take part in arts, crafts and activities to make fantastic wildlife creations to scale the ancient walls.

Youngsters can create colourful creatures, make magical masks, invent their own enormous animal and take part in arts, crafts and activities as part of a packed day of fun.

Curated by heritage charity The Churches Conservation Trust, Church Tourism Week is an annual celebration of our outstanding architectural heritage and an invitation to explore church buildings – and British history – in new ways.

Between July 21-30, the silvered oak doors of historic churches and chapels across the country will be thrown open for a programme of events and activities for all ages including concerts and theatre, Champing church camping adventures, historic tours, family trails and craft, tower climbs and art exhibitions.

St Lawrence’s Church, cared for by The Churches Conservation Trust, is situated in the centre of Evesham alongside All Saints’ and the Abbey Tower.

The church is open daily for free tours and has recently introduced interactive visitor displays for the whole family.

St Lawrence’s hosts regular family events, as well as exhibitions and performances.
