Poetry, services and monthly chapel talks

Sandham Jonathan poetry reading

A new year opens up new opportunities to be inspired by Sandham's creative roots but in addition to our new season's workshops we continue to have our regular First World War poetry readings, services and monthly chapel talks.

Monthly chapel services - Wednesday 9 May 10.20 - 10.50am

Led by the Parish Rector David Bartholomew, these services include a poignant address and beautiful music, making them a very restful experience, set in the stunning surrounds of our chapel.

No booking required. Free. Donations invited

First World War poetry readings - Saturday 5th May 11am - 4pm

Come and listen to the melliflous voice of Jonathan Jones reading iconic First World War poetry throughout the day in the setting of this inspiring chapel created by Stanley Spencer.

No booking required. Usual entry charge to the chapel.

Chapel talks Monday 14 May 11am - 1pm

Listen to the story behind one of the most important 20th century artists - Sir Stanley Spencer and how his dream of a "Holy Box" came to fruition.

Listen to our knowledgeable and passionate volunteers tell you about Stanley Spencer and how his service in the medical core both in Bristol and Salonika led to the creation of this iconic building and content. Hear about the realisation of the chapel, who was Harry Sandham and the 19 paintings which line three walls inside.

There will be time for questions, an opportunity to wander around our new garden or buy something to remember your special visit.

Booking reccommended. £8 plus usual entry to the chapel.
