The 2022 Jesmond Community Festival is now largely finished, and what a success it has been! But a number of the festival events are continuing, in one way or another.
One example is the Centenary Exhibition at Holy Trinity Church in Churchill Gardens NE2 2HB, which continues until September. Admission is free; the display is in the Church, and is open to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 1pm, and on Sundays from 1pm to 3pm.
The exhibition will interest anyone interested in the history of this part of Jesmond, and provides an opportunity to see a series of stunning stained-glass windows, and fine oak carving by Ralph Hedley and Percy Appleby. The Grade 2* listed building was consecrated as a war memorial church in September 1922, and the exhibition also provides a fascinating insight into the lives of some of the church members who make up the congregation.
