Knaptoft Church Outdoor Service with brass band
On Sunday 17th September we have arranged a sketch day at Knaptoft Church Ruins - Knaptoft, Lutterworth LE17 6PA. You are welcome to join us at any time from 1pm. There is much to sketch, from the gardens, to the ruins, to the views towards Leicester and finally people attending a service, which will be held between 3pm and 4pm, including a brass band. There are no loos on site, but you are welcome to use our erstwhile Chairwoman Kim Hall's loo as she lives close by. The weather should be perfect and there are a number of benches around the site!
