Horncastle and villages Churches Festival Weekend

Welcome to the 2018 Horncastle and Villages Churches Festival – a celebration of a rich architecture and heritage, of beautiful tranquillity and spirituality. This year many of our churches will be paying special tribute to those who lost their lives during the First and Second World Wars.

Every church has a story to tell, and at St Mary’s the focus  will be on the the village during the Great War. Visitors are invited to view the war memorial stained glass window unveiled on Trinity Sunday, 30th May 1926, flower arrangements, and special displays including over 500 knitted poppies, a World War One book collection and other memorabilia.

Entry is free on Saturday and Sunday 8th – 9th September from 10am to 4pm and refreshments will be available.
