About 50 people enjoyed a visit to  the Holbeach Cemetery Chapels during the day  exploring this beautiful heritage area in a variety of ways

Cemetery Trails were led by Linden Secker from 11.00 a.m. – 12.00  and 2.00 p.m. – 3.00.

Young people enjoy finding out about the Graveyard Survey

The Graveyard Survey team  shared their expertise, showing several of the visitors, including some children, how they plot the graveyard.

Exhibition of art work was  viewed and very much appreciated.

Trustees were on hand to answer any questions about the future plans for the Chapels and it is an opportunity for you to give your views.

Light refreshments were available all day.

PAINT OUT DAY – THURSDAY, 10th AUGUST

This is an opportunity for anyone who enjoys a day’s painting in beautiful, peaceful surroundings.  Come and capture the Chapels from a particular viewpoint; or maybe a particular gravestone or group of gravestones; or the avenue of trees and the shadows they cast.   There are also some excellent features inside the chapels to sketch and paint.

There will be an expert on hand to offer advice and ideas if you wish.

Paintings produced at the Painting Workshop in July

There  will be the opportunity to exhibit your painting or sketch on                    SATURDAY 12th AUGUST, when we have an Open Day at the Chapels.

The day is FREE, supported by funding from Heritage Lottery, and light refreshments will be available throughout the day.

It would help with our planning if you can tell us beforehand that you will be coming:

OR  

But just turn up on the day if you wish.

CHILDREN’S DRAMA WORKSHOP – second workshop

Repeat workshop was a great success with 27 children participating.  22 children had enjoyed the first workshop.

Children explored through drama what it was like to be a child in Victorian times.  The research, that has been carried out by the HCRG on the biographies of people buried in the cemetery, was used to inform the play that the children performed at the end of the 2 day workshop.
