Snowdrop Festival 2020

Swithland Snowdrop Festival 14-16 February 2020.
Thank you to everyone who helped to make this year’s Snowdrop & Art Festival such a great success. Here’s a few photos to remind you of the peace within while Storm Dennis raged around outside.

Preparations are underway

Preparations are well underway for the St Leonard’s Snowdrop Festival.

The Snowdrops are out in the Churchyard and hopefully, they will still be there for the festival in two week’s time.

The Snowdrop festival will take place over the weekend of Friday 14th – Sunday 16th February 2020.

Join us to celebrate the coming of Spring when our churchyard snowdrops will be in bloom and the church decorated with troughs of daffodil, tulip and crocus flowers.

Also on display will be Springtime themed artwork from the Birstall Art Society as well as artwork and handwritten poetry from the pupils of St Leonard’s C of E Primary School.

Members of Janet Lee’s Art Group are creating a exciting art installation in our south porch and there will be a unique auricula theatre based display of flowering plants.

Opening times are:
+ Friday 14th – 9am to 4pm
+ Saturday 15th – 10am to 4pm
+ Sunday 16th -11am to 4pm

Our Sunday services will include a Sung Eucharist at 9.30am with guest preacher the Revd Eric Whitley, and a ‘Songs of Praise’ service at 4pm to close the event.

Various refreshments will be served throughout the weekend. Why not drop in to share these with us and see all that is beautiful in the promise of Spring.
