The David Parr House – an extraordinary Cambridge home
10/10/2021 @ 15:00 - 17:00£10
The Friends of Holy Saviour Church invite you to their next “Talk & Tea“ event, when Tamsin Wimhurst, of the David Parr House Trust, will give an illustrated talk on “The David Parr House”.
Decorated in the late Victorian era this house lay undiscovered until a few years ago when its extraordinary story began to be uncovered.
David Parr was a ‘decorator artist’ who worked for some of our best known Victorian designers of the day such as William Morris and George Bodley. He decorated churches and palaces for those who could afford such decoration but in his spare time he came home and decorated his humble terrace house in the same style.
Lived in by his granddaughter until a few years ago its interior remained a wondrous hidden secret. Now it is being saved, restored and opened up to the public so that many more can enjoy its unique atmosphere.
Sunday 10th October at 3pm in Holy Saviour Church, Radcliffe Road SG5 1QG.
