The Great Church Mouse Trail
October 19 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Etienne, the church mouse at St Stephen’s, would like to invite everyone who is young and young-at-heart to a fun interactive Great Church Mouse Trail at the church.
Whilst you are on the Trail, you can admire our newly-restored William Morris stained glass windows.
As he shows you around the church, Etienne will be helped by his friends:
- Louis, who lives out at Pleinmont;
- Gus, a butler mouse who lives in Town and knows all about the Victorian gentry who built St Stephen’s and their connections to world history;
- and Suzette, Etienne’s sister who lives in London and knows the artists of the William Morris “Firm”.
You will also meet Sid and Harry, mice who work in Mr Morris’ stained-glass studio. They will tell you how glass is made; and you can play a game of Egyptian marbles or make a crown or a sun catcher.
Have you ever wondered why a brass eagle sits on a ball in church? Or what a chalice is used for? Find out some of the fun facts connected to the ‘Tree of Jesse’, including Christmas carols, a West End Musical and the name of a wine bottle.
The Great Church Mouse Trail will occur on:
- Friday 18th October, from 1.00-3.00pm
- Saturday 19th October, from 10.00am-3.00pm
- Sunday, 20th October, from 2.00-4.00pm.
Etienne and his friends look forward to seeing you and have asked a few humans to help them!
