Indeed Harry & Edna have reflected the importance of the Church in 1940s life in a number of their re-enactment impressions. For example their Victory in the Garden impression can include a harvest festival as part of their active scenarios.
Edna’s Wartime Christmas presentation has also been used as a method of outreach. Especially as church buildings are such a lovely setting for a nostalgic journey back to the 1940s.
Holding events in a church demystifies the building to ‘non church’ attending visitors, provides an opportunity to promote future events such as carol concerts / Christmas services & approach new visitors.
Faith also played a role when they curated the 1940s area of the Vintage at Goodwood festival as they managed to recruit the local Baptist church to perform a harvest festival service.
Harry & Edna donate 10% of their time free of charge to Christian outreach either through performing or via their event services.
