Kempe’s influence on Victorian and 20th-century church art and decoration was immense, and his work attracted the patronage of Royalty, senior clergy, the aristocracy and friends. Adrian Barlow, an experienced writer, lecturer and recognised expert on Kempe and his work, will present some of his thoughts about Kempe’s work in this lecture organised by the Lincolnshire Churches Trust.
The lecture will take place in St Wulfram’s Church, Church Street, Grantham (which houses good examples of Kempe’s work). Tickets cost £10 per head and include light refreshments in the church after the lecture. There will be a chance to talk to the author who will have copies of his recently published book ‘Espying Heaven’ available for purchase. Please book tickets in advance from Graham Cook, Honorary Secretary at Lincolnshire Churches Trust. Please telephone on 07940 715687 for further details and bookings.
