On Saturday 17th October the Nottingham Women’s History Group have arranged a private tour of the award wining refurbished St. Martin’s Church in Bilborough. Meet at the church on St. Martin’s Road, Off Strelley Road, Bilborough, Nottingham NG8 3BH at 2.30pm. The tour is FREE, but we’ll take a collection for a donation to the project. Book by emailing NWHG.
We will see many of the hidden treasures of the church – especially the 1946 Annunciation mural by Evelyn Gibbs. Presumed lost, the mural was uncovered during the recent refurbishment and the project won the SPAB John Betjeman Award 2015 for their sensitive repair of the Evelyn Gibbs murals.
Gibbs is one of the artists NWHG cover on our tours of Nottingham
