Around 200 guests witnessed the unveiling of wonderful works of art adorning four windows at Holbeach Cemetery Chapels.

Inspired by stained glass and the chapel’s architecture, the photographic murals were created by artist Steven Hatton and were revealed to the public by Coun Nick Worth at a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday.

Steve created the windows alongside workshop participants and pupils from William Stukeley Primary School and Holbeach Primary Academy under the umbrella of the art organisation, Transported.

Among attractions on the day were an ongoing arts workshop led by Liz Kelleher from Spalding High School, live music, including a performance by Meg McPartlin, a display focusing on the history of the chapels and video projections onto the walls of the chapels.

Elizabeth Bergeron, Transported’s arts engagement worker, said: “It was an absolutely fabulous day.”
