Sponsor St Mary in the Castle

St Mary in the Castle is without a doubt a beautiful space in our town: from the crypt to the cupola, from the exterior to the interior, the building is an impressive centre point of our lovely town. Currently, St Mary in the Castle is run without any external funding – and the team there have sent out an SOS for sponsors and donations so that the building can receive some much needed TLC and its place as a hub of arts and entertainment and inspiring venue for all occasions can continue. HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.
