People will have a final chance to experience an unusual art exhibition when the doors of an historic former church in Great Yarmouth are thrown open to the public on Thursday, April 13, from 10am to 2pm.
The Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust acquired St John's Church last year and plans to repair and conserve the Grade II-listed landmark, which has been empty for about a decade, as a conservation and cultural heritage hub.
The open day will be an opportunity to see inside the church, learn about its history and share stories about its past or ideas for its future.
This will also be a last chance to enjoy the 'floating' art exhibition, entitled Suspended between Art, Architecture and Preservation.
People can find out more about getting involved in a project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund based around the church's hand-decorated kneeler cushions.
