This Should be a Fun Fashion Show :

St. Mary's as an Exhibition, Concert and Recital Venue :

St. Mary's is an excellent Exhibition Venue because of its location, beauty, size, acoustics and wonderful new lighting. Some Organisations have used it for years for Special Services, Concerts and Recitals. We believe the recently installed augmentary lighting has added greatly to the quality of the venue and we hope this will attract more 'bookings'.

Margaret Hunton, our Tourism Officer, has been organising at least three exhibitions every year for the past many years. If you are interested in putting on an exhibition in St. Mary's Church please contact her on 01845 524904.
To arrange Recitals, Concerts or Special Services you may contact the Media Officer on 01845 523247 but email communications are preferred: media@stmaryschurchthirsk.org.uk
