Join the team at St Mary Redcliffe for the premiere of five thematic films about the church and its heritage. The films will be accompanied by a Q&A with film-maker Nick Street as well as an opportunity to tour the building with one of the church's volunteer guides.
For the past year, the team at St Mary Redcliffe has been working with acclaimed heritage film-maker Nick Street to produce a series of short thematic films about the church building and its rich heritage.
The films were commissioned after receiving funding from The Canynges Society, a charitable organisation that has supported St Mary Redcliffe since its inception at the beginning of the great C19th restoration of the church, during the Presidency of Richard Clarke.
There are five films, covering different aspects of the church's history:
Film 1 – The story of the building
Film 2 – The church and the city
Film 3 – Maritime history
Film 4 – Art and literature
Film 5 – Music
As well as providing material for interpretation and exhibition within the church, the films will support a new improved presentation of the church building on St Mary Redcliffe and The Canynges Society's digital platforms, encouraging more people to visit Redcliffe and discover the history of the church. In the long-run improved storytelling and presentation will help support organisational sustainability ensuring that St Mary Redcliffe and its rich history are available to future generations.
After the film showing, there will be the opportunity to take a tour of the church, including a visit to the Chatterton Room.
