Painting the Past

July 19-20

Swish. Brush. Etch. Sketch...
A group of artists find themselves stuck in the past, trapped in the stories of their ancient artwork.
They have one chance to escape, and it all hangs on the shoulders of one man, Sir John St. John, 1st Baronet of Lydiard.

Come on a journey through time as young actors from Swindon’s Prime Theatre bring to life the stories of the Artwork of St. Mary’s Church and the historic family whose legacy has shaped the Lydiard that we know and love today. This production is part of the St. Mary’s Church conservation project and has been made possible by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Please note: The performance will take place in various locations in Lydiard Park and audience will be asked to walk between scenes. Pay and display parking is available on arrival.
