Mancroft in Details is a free lecture series taking place on the second Tuesday of every month over the summer. Subjects generally relate to the church building and its history, local history and important people. Talks are at 7pm in the church and drinks are available.
Thank you to Joel Halcomb for a vivid and detailed exploration of the events of the ‘Great Blow of 1648′. What a fascinating insight in to the people of Norwich and parishioners of Mancroft in times past.
We now look forward to a talk given by Barbara Miller on the 11th July at 7pm. ‘Sir Thomas Browne: Dr. of medicine, lover of nature, family man and parishioner of St Peter Mancroft.’ Barbara writes:
‘The statue on the Haymarket and the smaller sculptures are so familiar that they are passed without thought but they tell something of the story of a remarkable Norwich citizen, Sir Thomas Browne. Like us he lived in troubled times but his warm character and high moral standing gained him respect from all sides. Sir Thomas was a devoted family man and he and his wife are commemorated inside the church he attended and loved.’
