For us at St Mark’s, music and drama are wonderful ways of meeting each other, of engaging with the deeper questions, and exploring faith. Our wide ranging events bring people together both within the church and the wider community, Over the years we’ve produced and hosted plays, musicals, revues, film evenings, concerts, choral extravanganzas, organathons and much more besides.
Radius Festival of New Plays – 15th October
Exploring the Mystery
St Mark’s is delighted to be hosting this year’s festival which is being organised by Radius (The Religious Drama Society of Great Britain). The event is available to Radius members and people who are local or from further afield who are interested in how drama can present issues of faith and belief and all the mysteries and paradoxes of being human. There will be specially commissioned dramas, panel discussion and lunch and tea provided by our ever hospitable catering team.
Nick Warburton and Wendy Walford (Radius Council members) have produced a promotional video which features the church and some familiar St Mark’s faces – this can be found by clicking on the link below.

Radius is the religious drama society of Great Britain. We are a volunteer-run, ecumenical charity, bringing together people with a shared interest in religious drama – this we define broadly as not only drama about religious stories, but that which “illuminates the human condition”, to quote our second president, E. Martin Browne. We do not mount our own productions but work with local groups who ask for assistance in putting on a performance or festival event. Check out our website for more information.
