St James's Festival Weekend


Saturday 3rd July 

Our annual open day will be joyful and safe! It is essential to book timed places for church visits, tower tours (now full) and the organ recital (masks need to be worn) - admission free!

The stalls, refreshments and treasure hunt will be outside (weather permitting) and do not require booking. 


1.30-5.00 Climb to the bell ringing chamber and then go further up to the viewing room. Because of the many steps and stairs, all children, under 16, must be accompanied, no children under 4 can enter, and only 8's and older above the ringing chamber. This is for everyone's safety. 

Booking essential: Please note that all the tower tour spaces are now taken


1.30-4.00 Self-guided tours of the church - bring a smart phone and earphones to download an audio tour (paper copies available). 

Booking essential:


3.00-3.30 Organ Recital by Tom Stanbury. Lovely music in a calming atmosphere.
