Arts at St Mark’s

Screen Shot 2017-10-10 at 10.44.45For 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.

RECENT EVENTS

Mr Darwin's Poster

We were delighted host two performances of the highly acclaimed play, Mr Darwin’s Tree in November, a play written by Murray Watts and originally commissioned by the think tank Theos in 2009 for the bicentenary of Darwin’s birth .

Andrew Harrison’s compelling 75-minute solo performance focuses on the relationship between the agnostic Charles Darwin and his Christian wife, Emma, and takes us on a fascinating journey through Darwin’s life and though some of his own exploration of questions of science, faith, love and human destiny.
