DANCE, art music, handicrafts and a wildflower garden were just some of the attractions drawing in visitors at a Scarborough church open day.
In celebration of its patron saint, St James’ Church and Community Arts Centre in Seamer Road welcomed people to look around the building and to take part in various activities.
The centre’s art students showcased their work in an exhibition of individual creations plus a large collaborative piece. Visitors were also invited to take part in dancing and a drawing class.
Arts Centre administrator Jan Brittain, said the busy day of events was an ideal opportunity to show people the inner workings of the church and Community Arts Centre.
She said: “”We had a successful day, there were a lot of people coming in to view the church and the Arts Centre.
“It was also part of the church festival as it was St James’ Day who our church is dedicated to, so we try to do something every year.
“It’s also about opening the church up to a lot of people and letting them see what people do in our centre.”
