Royal Garden Party

Margaret at the Royal Garden PartyMargaret Worrall, of Peasley Cross URC, attended a Royal Garden Party and reports back: "We had a lovely day. The gates opened at 3pm, there was a long queue but we quickly got into Buckingham Palace gardens. We were greeted with a cold drink followed by afternoon tea. 

Her Majesty the Queen"The Queen, Prince William and his wife Kathryn came out at 4 pm, although with 8,000 people there we couldn't see them at the beginning.  We had a walk around the grounds and then had an ice cream. At 5.40pm the guards came out all in their red uniforms. We did get on the front row and saw the Royal party coming out of the Royal marquee and walk back to the Palace."

Bible show

Actors from Would You Adam and Eve ItA unique Bible show - which gained a 5 star review at the Edinburgh festival - is coming to Southport this month.

You can experience 90 Bible chapters in 90 fun-filled minutes with Would You Adam and Eve It, in association with Bible Society. It's on national tour and will be at Holy Trinity Church, Southport, on Friday 28 June.

When Searchlight Theatre Company performed it at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017, the Review gave it five stars and raved, "It’s a must-see: friendly, frenetic and so funny that the person next to me was crying with laughter throughout. The show was true to the Biblical narrative at every twist and turn, but also wallowed in the bizarre and brilliant details."
