If you fancy an amazing 'free' evening of entertainment over the Easter weekend, there are three performances of the Passion Play in Hornchurch, alongside the Queens Theatre. The passion Play has been enacted for the past twenty years, about every five years, and is a very professional performance, poignant and free. If you can make it, it is a very moving piece of theatre, of the last few days of Jesus, and his resurrection. The play starts about 7.30 on Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Sunday. There is ample parking in the Queens Theatre, and Sainsbury car parks, both are very close to the performances.

Lord Napier - in 1945 just after bomb damage and modern day art

My Grandfather, back row last on left, at what looks like the end or start of a day out or just a booze up. A man who started life very poor, was in a workhouse in 1901, aged 11; and then off to the war to end all wars in 1914 as one of the first to volunteer for battle. Hence known as an Old Contemptible. Off to France and shot in the right arm after just two weeks. After amputation, he was invalided out shortly after to receive his very high war pension and gratitude from the Government. His wife Edith worked, and can be seen, at  at the Morpeth Castle in the 1920's**
