Warwick’s St. Mark’s Anglican Church hosted a spectacular Heritage Festival over the weekend, starting with morning and afternoon teas on the old Rectory Veranda on Friday 16 April and ending with a beautiful baroque concert in the Church on Sunday 18 April.

Quilt shows, history book sales, guided tours and light lunches kept visitors entertained all weekend long, with a performance by the talented Brisbane Baroque Players and two guest sopranos the perfect closer to the festival.

Since St. Mark’s first Heritage Festival in 2015, Warwick locals – as well as interstate, national and international visitors – have enjoyed the opportunity to explore the 1868 sandstone Church and hear about its history.

Organisers of the Heritage Festival were thrilled to once again be able to share stories of the Church with visitors, having had to cancel last year’s event due to Covid-19.
