A variety of events will take place in Louth this year as the town marks the 500th anniversary of the completion of St James’ Church spire.

The Team Parish of Louth, led by Rector of Louth Nick Brown, has been integral in setting up a wide range of events starting during the Easter period, running right the way through summer up to the anniversary weekend in mid-September, and continuing through the autumn.

Rev Nick Brown said: “The church has been here for centuries as a part of the 
life of the town and we look forward to sharing our celebrations with as many people as possible.

“The walls of St James’ have witnessed events, both good and bad, in the life of 
the town and it has been a place for people to rest, reflect and celebrate for so many centuries.”

Rev Brown added: “We look forward to celebrating this history; a history that is still being written in the 
life of our community.”

The programme of events will kick off on 
Saturday March 28 with a 
chess competition in the 
nave of St James’ Church which is open to all, organised by Louth Chess Club.

The following day, Sunday March 29, the Louth Choral Society will hold a Brahms concert - visit www.louthchoral.co.uk for full details.
