"Nature's own work it seemed,

Nature-taught Art"

John Milton, Paradise Regained

For so many of us, the last eighteen months has been a time of grief and forfeit. When the history books are written it will be the time we lost. Yet amidst the personal stories of loss and hardship one element shone brightly through the shadows and that was the rediscovery of the sheer joy, energy and nurturing powers of nature.

 

John Ruskin knew only too well the power of the natural world in its defiant contrast to the brutal and damaging dark realities of the Industrial Revolution. Ruskin was the original environmentalist and his advocacy of nature’s ability to heal was a significant driver in his philosophy that fed into the values of the Arts & Crafts Movement.

 

Ruskin would have approved of Dostoevsky’s belief that ‘the world will be saved by beauty’, a belief that inspires our own mission here at Holy Trinity Church in Sloane Street, described by the poet John Betjeman as ‘the Cathedral of the Arts & Crafts’. 

 

Our fifth Arts & Crafts Festival this September goes under the prescient title of Paradise Regained. The Festival explores that original Ruskin ecological philosophy through our own contemporary concerns in a three-week Festival focusing on themes of environment, nature and sustainability through a celebratory series of discussions, music, dance, workshops, fashion, poetry, theology and of course worship.

 

Here we present the details of our 2021 Festival so keep the dates in your diary and look out for more event information and booking opportunities as the summer unfolds.   Alongside each event summary, we show the number of tickets we expect to be able to offer, in compliance with current government social distancing guidance.  If and when that changes, we may be in a position to release more tickets, so please check the website during July, August and September for updates.
