It’s time to practise those 50s hairdos, fashion your fedoras and dust off your petticoats, there’s only one week to go until the opening of our 1950s welfare hall! We hope you are as excited as we are! 🥳
Join The 1900s Pit Village folk today as they celebrate their Sunday School Anniversary, a big event for the community, when children, wearing their finery, would have taken part in a service before gathering for a picnic and a treat. Enjoy beautiful choir performances and services held in The 1900s Pit Village chapel, as well as craft activities and fun for all the family. #sundayschool#sundayschool#choir#music#crafts
