Nottingham Theatre Royal’s ‘Royal Company Storytellers’ are bringing an evening of legend and history to Bilborough on Monday 4th July (7pm start) as they perform tales of folklore set in and around the beautifully restored St Martin’s Church. There will be tales of star crossed lovers, an outlaw in green, an earnest candle and a boy called Jack amongst others.
Natasha Scullion, St Martin’s Hidden Treasures Project Activities and Volunteer Co-ordinator, said ‘We’re delighted that the storytellers are coming to perform for us and St Martin’s will provide the ideal backdrop for these tales as the church itself is medieval and so it will be a perfect setting to add to the drama.’
In 2014 St Martin’s Church received a grant of £744,100 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for The Hidden Treasures project to restore the medieval church and unique 20th Century wall paintings by war artist Evelyn Gibbs, and fund three years of exciting community and heritage activities based at the church.
The event is free to attend and takes place at St Martin’s Church, St Martin’s Road, Off Strelley Road, Bilborough, NG8 3BH on Monday 4th July at 7pm. There is no need to book, just come along on the evening. Car parking is available and there is full disabled access, Refreshments will be available during the interval.
