THIS IS A TICKET ONLY EVENT
BRINGING HISTORY ALIVE - HOLY TRINITY CHURCH, ILFRACOMBE 5.30 Start
Tickets £10 (to include supper of seasonal soup, crusty bread rolls and a glass of wine). Adults only. Tickets limited and must be paid for at the time of booking.
Holy Trinity Parish church dates back to the 13th century but it has seen many changes and re-builds and refurbishments over the years. Some of the gravestone still intact date back to the 1500s. The interior of the church has been extensively reworked over the past 700 years, not least by the Victorians, who had a major impact throughout Ilfracombe. The church tower dates from the 13th century. The memorials inside and surrounding the church give a fascinating insight into the town's Victorian glory-days, and the charismatic characters within it.
Bringing History Alive is a guided tour around the graveyard with actors from Studio Theatre who will appear and talk about the lives of those buried there. From humble families to gentry, shipwrecks to extreme bravery, there will be something for everyone.
ALL PROCEEDS FOR THIS TOUR WILL GO TO THE VOLUNTARY WORK UNDERTAKEN BY THE HOLY TRINITY GRAVEYARD GROUP FOR THE UPKEEP OF THE GRAVEYARD.
The evening will be run in association with Studio theatre and Ilfracombe Museum.
Tickets will be on sale from Ilfracombe Museum and Ilfracombe Tourist Information Centre nearer the time.
