"Kirk & Town" - History Tour and Heritage Display

Theatrical - historical tour

Singers and actors combine with local historians to bring the third in a series of tours combining ‘history with hilarity’ as part of the SA History Festival. The cast of ‘Kirk & Town’ is drawn from four community groups in Strathalbyn: the Alexandrina Singers, St. Andrews Uniting Church, the Strath Players and the Strath Aboriginal Reference Group.

 

During the first two weekends of May, crowds will be summoned by bagpipes and led from St. Andrews (dating from 1844) through the heart of this historic town and gardens. Strathalbyn wasthe second town surveyed after Adelaide and is rich in early settler architecture, Aboriginal and colonial history.

 

Heritage display

After experiencing the glorious interior of the church, cross to St. Andrews Hall to discover more stories of 'Kirk and Town' through paintings, photographs, vintage social fashions, memorabilia, heritage crafts, earlychildren's games, home baking and produce - and more. Enjoy country-style refreshments. Proceeds to St Andrews Uniting Church Restoration Fund.
