Snowdrop Weekend
St Leonard's, Beoley has a church yard which is beautiful at all seasons of the year. It is much visited in January and February when large areas are carpeted in snowdrops
Recently the church has put on Snowdrop Weekends with the churchyard open to all, the church looking at its best with flower displays and an exhibition and wonderful refreshments available in the adjoining hall known as the Tapestry Room.
Dates for 2015
Saturday 14th February
10.00 a.m. until 4.30 pm
Sunday 15th February

Sunday services until 12noon. .................. Marriage Affirmation Service at 5.30 p.m.

The churchyard contains a late medieval cross base (possibly from Bordesley Abbey) and the tombstone of P.C. James Davies, the only Worcestershire policeman to have been murdered on duty. The church contains the spectacular Renaissance tombs of the Sheldon family in their chapel built originally for Roman Catholic worship, and the only post-Reformation altar in an Anglican church which was consecrated by a pope.
