An Easter Play

April 8, 2012

Churches have long traditions of theatrical events to mark the major festivals and in Christianity, they don’t come more major than Easter. No wonder our local established church, St Mary’s, Market Lavington, has been known to stage a play for Easter, involving the children in the church community.

Our picture shows a play entitled ‘Go Tell’. This was performed in the church for Easter, 1953, the Coronation year of our present Queen, Elizabeth II.

Now that, sadly, is all the information we have. There appear to be fifteen children involved and we can also make out a man who might be an organist.

We are certain that someone out there will be able to tell us who most of the youngsters are.

Do get in touch if you can name any of the people – please.

Here’s some close ups to help.
