To support the launch of the exhibition, Jill from the Stockport Heritage Trust kindly volunteered to create and present an hour-long talk on Saturday (24th June) about St Mary’s Church, touching on some of the areas we couldn’t quite fit in.
Beyond an early sneak peek a couple of weeks ago, I had very little input and no idea how it was going to turn out. I can happily report that it was a lovely morning with a full crowd.
The presentation was great, and was full of anecdotes and historical tidbits from St Mary’s past. After several months of semi-intensive research, it was a pleasure to still be so surprised by this venerable old building looming above the skyline of Stockport!
Thanks go to Jill Trumble for giving the talk, the Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery for setting the space up and letting us use their equipment and finally our visitors who came and engaged with the content so readily!
