As usual, our Fair Shares Café will be open for tempting lunches, snacks and homemade cakes, and our Spring Exhibition is well worth a look – encouraging us to make the most of the season with words and art.
Then on Friday 5 May, Emmanuel is proud to host ‘St Francis of Assisi’, a one-man performance by Paul Alexander which has toured to critical acclaim. The show starts at 8pm, and tickets are £10 (free to under 16s). This promises to be a most exciting and unusual piece, do come if you can.
