Snowdrops and art at Thorpe Market church
Thorpe Market Church is inviting the community to a free art exhibition every Sunday in February, along with a chance to enjoy the snowdrops in the churchyard and refreshments in the church.
Snowdrop Sundays have become an institution at St Margaret’s over the past 20 years, with more than 800 people visiting the Snowdrops events in 2016.
Every Sunday in February church members and friends will be offering their usual hospitality, with an opportunity to visit the award-winning conservation churchyard and see the snowdrops and aconites; and to admire the results of 2016’s Norfolk Workout Group volunteering in St Margaret’s churchyard and Hazel Grove.
Local artists (see below) will be exhibiting in the warm church as well, each with a selection of original paintings, prints, cards and gifts for sale, and there will be a good selection of used books to exchange or buy.
Hot drinks and home-made cakes will be available.
The event will be open every Sunday from 1.00 pm to 4pm with free entry. Parking, WC facilities and wheelchair access. St Margaret’s Church, Thorpe Market, NR11 8UA.
