As usual our Grade II* listed Chapel will be open to all visitors on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September as part of the popular national Heritage Open Days scheme. Take a leisurely look at our unique interior, gorgeous peaceful garden-cum-burial yard and the Gatehouse with its hidden Victorian period scullery. We’re open from 10am to 4.30pm on Saturda and from noon to 4.30pm on Sunday, following our usual 11am Sunday service which all are also welcome to attend. Tea and coffee will be available in our Vestry.
This year, in recognition of the centenary of the Universal Suffrage Act, the theme of Heritage Open Days will be ‘Extraordinary Women’. Oat Street Chapel has its own Extraordinary Woman in the person of former Chapel Member Amy Nightingale, the first Lady Mayor of Evesham (1944 – 45). Her photograph is to be found in the Chapel’s vestry.
