Over 100 people representing the festival churches joined us in the prestigious surroundings of Hemswell Court
Firstly a thank you presentation to Irmgard Parrott, tireless volunteer with our festival for many years, well done Irmgard!
Then an hour's talk by Mr Vic Hughes on the Magna Carta - highly entertaining and very informative!
Then it was over to marketing and PR ladies Angela Montague and Linda Patrick who updated everyone on last year's successes and talked about aims for 2015 and even 2016! A PDF of their slides can be viewed at this link: Marketing & PR Presentation
Then an inspirational talk by Archdeacon Tim Barker on church tourism and the importance of involving the wider community in your churches, including people who would not usually step into a church!
And the event was very nicely finished off with a delightful lunch in the beautiful Georgian dining room
