Egmanton Exhibition 11th July

23rd June 2015
Members printed and digital work will be on display in the church at Egmanton, just south of Tuxford, between 2 and 4.30pm on both July 11th and 12th. The church has a magnificently ornate interior with a screen, organ doors and stained glass by the famous architect and stained glass designer Sir Ninian Comper. His ashes are buried in the north aisle of the nave of Westminster Abbey. In 1907 the Dean of Westminster commissioned a series of eight stained glass windows from him for the north side of the nave depicting figures of kings associated with the Abbey together with an abbot of Westminster from the same era. He also designed a separate window to John Bunyan in the north transept, a second window and the furnishings for the Warriors chapel in the nave (now St George's chapel).
Originally intended for a nearby church, the screen and organ doors were installed at Egmanton by the Duke of Newcastle and both have been recently restored, the latter only last year. There are many photographic opportunities in this church and members attending will have the chance to decide if they would like to join a private RDPS photographic opportunity there at a later date.
Admission to the exhibition is £3 per person, including a vintage tea. Members will be admitted free of charge on production of a current RDPS membership card, but the charge will apply if you want tea.
