525 LIVE

Between 19th-23rd November 2019 we will be staging an inspiring theatrical and dramatic multimedia event in Monken Hadley Church – 525 LIVE. This is to celebrate the 525th Anniversary of the Restoration of the Church in 1494 and raise money for the Church House restoration fund. We will also be supporting Noah's Ark Children's Hospice.

Bringing together dramatic lighting, music, video and live theatre into a stunning ‘Son et Lumiere’, we will be telling the story of the history and heritage of the church and the local community of Barnet, Monken Hadley and Hadley Wood.

Work is already underway to create and produce the event – planning, script writing and filming – and will continue throughout the spring and summer. A team of local creative and technical professionals from the church and beyond will show the variety of our community – its history through to the present day – working with our school and local groups.

There will be six performances – five in the evening and one matinee – lasting around two hours. The last of these will be a gala performance and will end with a ceremonial lighting of the church beacon.

We will provide more information, including how to purchase tickets, on this page over the course of the next few months. In the meantime, make sure you make a note of the dates in your diary! Any enquiries, please contact 525live@monkenhadley.church
