Brangwyn Heritage Day 9th September
A rare opportunity for the general public to see Frank Brangwynâ€™s mural panels and sketches in Christâ€™s Hospitalâ€™s magnificent Chapel on Saturday, 9 September when the School will be open as part of The Civic Trustâ€™s Heritage Open Days to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Brangwynâ€™s death. There will also be a lecture by Libby Horner, an expert on Brangwynâ€™s work.
Brangwyn's mural panels were commissioned early in the 20th Century by the first Head Master of the School in Horsham, the Revd Dr A W Upcott. At that time, Brangwyn was relatively unknown. The murals were prepared over a period of years between 1914 and 1923 on the theme of spreading the Gospel.
Christâ€™s Hospital will be open to visitors from 10am â€“ 4pm.
The Brangwyn Lecture (limited to 300 on a first come, first served basis) is from 11.30 â€“ 12.30.
Band Parade in the Quadrangle at 12.45 pm, when Christâ€™s Hospitalâ€™s 840 boys and girls march into lunch to the accompaniment of the 100 young instrumentalists.
The Museum at Christâ€™s Hospital will be open.
Teas will be available in Dining Hall from 2.30 â€“ 4pm; a monumental frieze painted by Antonio Verrio dominates this great hall, along with other fine paintings.
